Bowood Gardens in Wiltshire is home to a wide variety of speciality gardens, making for the perfect day out for horticultural lovers. A special treat includes scheduled monthly Exclusive Tours of the Private Walled Gardens.
Bowood’s magnificent stately home stands within one of ‘Capability’ Brown’s most beautiful parks, with gently sloping lawns stretching down to the lake and distant views to the chalk downlands. Delights within the park include the Cascade, Doric Temple, Terrace Gardens and for children, the fantastic Adventure Playground.
A separate Woodland Garden, showcasing blooms of Rhododendrons and Azaleas, is open to the public between April and June every year, according to the flowering season.
These Wiltshire gardens are one of the special glories of Bowood and encompass almost every period of English garden design from the early Georgian period onwards. Enjoy a cream tea or a light refreshment at The Treehouse Café after soaking up all the Estate’s history.
