Barnsley House Gardens


A lovely Arts and Crafts style garden by Rosemary Verey surrounds a 17th-century manor house.

The Garden

Rosemary Verey built this internationally acclaimed 4.5 acre garden over several decades, beginning in the 1950s. This former winner of the Christies Garden of the Year award features a mixture of classic garden elements, including mixed borders, a laburnum walk (at its best in late May and early July) and a pleasant wilderness area.

More features include knot gardens, formal lawns, a profusion of bulbs, a lily pond, statuary, and two summer houses offering pleasant spots to relax.

Note: Barnsley House is now operating as a private luxury hotel and restaurant. Garden visits can be arranged by prior contact.
