HERITAGE RATING: Heritage Rating  ?

Dorneywood Garden is a combination cottage and kitchen garden in 1930s style, set around a xxth century house. The garden features a lily pond, stylish conservatory, rose garden, and herbaceous borders.

The garden is open on specific dates throughout the year, by written appointment only. Please see the National Trust website for details.

Note: Dorneywood House is an official government residence, reserved for a Minister of the Crown or the Secretary of State. As such, it is not open to the public. It was bequeathed to the National Trust by Lord Courtauld-Thomson in 1942 on the provision that it be used by the current Prime Minister or a senior cabinet minister. Since 1954 the estate has been managed by the Dorneywood Trust.
