Explore the grounds at Beeleigh Abbey this summer, including three acres of beautifully maintained gardens in a historic countryside setting, with mature trees surrounding the many plant and water features. There are also woodland walks leading to the tidal River Chelmer, Beeleigh Falls, cottage & bog gardens, along with an extensive formal rose garden filled with over 300 English roses, kitchen & soft fruit garden, orchard, wildflower meadow, wisteria walk, and stunning 85 metre long mixed border displays.
Specimen trees include species such as Magnolia, Tulip, and Indian Bean to name just a few.
The extensive lawn contains the remains of a 12th century abbey incorporated into a mainly 17th century private residence, with a new ornamental glasshouse & herb garden being completed in 2020.
A new feature for the gardens from 2021 is the new Tea Cabin and Courtyard refreshment area. This new space has been created in the midst of Mediterranean style planting and with COVID-19 safety measures in place to help you enjoy your visit.
There is no need to book in advance, however our last admission is at 15:30pm so please allow plenty of time to visit and take in the gardens to their fullest.
