There are 10 acres of enchanting woodland gardens to explore, with something for every age and every season.

Informal paths lead to captivating sights and scents with views across the New Forest to the Isle of Wight.

The Gardens, first planted in 1922, now contain an extensive collection of rare and beautiful plants from around the world.

It’s perfect for children too.

THE GARDENS THROUGH THE SEASONS

In Spring the garden start the year with a display with thousands of crocus, daffodils and bluebells, soon followed by our renowned collection of Azaleas and Rhododendrons, including rare species from the pre-hybridisation era. Drifts of Primulas lead to quiet scented glades full of ferns and foxgloves and the sound of insects busy collecting nectar.
