The Courts Garden


The Courts Garden is designed as a series of differently-styled garden rooms, each with their own surprises and unexpected vistas. Wonder at the peaceful water gardens and organically-shaped topiary, and stroll across the beautifully manicured lawns which are fringed by colourful, herbaceous borders. 

After exploring the formal gardens, wander through the arboretum with its wonderful species of trees from around the world and naturally planted spring bulbs. Stop off at The Orchard Room where you can learn more about the history of The Courts Garden and the cloth mill which once stood here.

After exploring the garden, enjoy a light lunch or sweet treat in the Rose Garden tearoom before taking a look through the gift shop which is filled with plants, pots, local produce and second-hand books.

Events take place at The Courts Garden throughout the spring and summer, including popular family trails and open-air theatre.
