Open every Thursday until the end of November then opening up in February with snowdrops

These historic gardens date back over 400 years. Their most renowned owner was the Countess of Warwick, mistress of Edward VII. In 1902 she commissioned leading designer Harold Peto to create stunning formal gardens. Abandoned in 1950 after the demolition of the house the gardens were forgotten for nearly 45 years. In 1993 an ambitious restoration programme was started. Today the 23 acres of gardens have a magical atmosphere, as the splendour of a century ago is gently revealed by the volunteers, allowing the visitor to imagine their past glories and enjoy their tranquil present.

Homemade refreshments, nature and craft activities for younger visitors. Picnics welcome. Well behaved dogs on leads. For detail on specific open day attractions see the website.
