Wide laurel-hedged rides radiate from the magnificent main lawn and take you to the tranquil woodland beyond.
In spring there is a wonderful display of Camellias, and Rhododendrons. In high summer the hydrangea collection makes a striking display of colour, and towering over the ponds we have exceptionally fine and majestic Eucryphias. In autumn, the trees and shrubs, together with the woodland beyond, create a rich tapestry of colour. The Larmer Tree contains a wonderful collection of ornate buildings, with free-flying Macaws and roaming peacocks all retained in an enchanting and tranquil atmosphere.

Groups of 15 guests or more benefit from a concessionary entrance fee, of £3.00 pp. We recommend that you pre-book and should you wish we can organise a guided tour with one of our gardeners to explain more about the grounds and their history, a tour costs £1.50 pp. We are happy to arrange group visits outside of our public opening times and estimate that a visit lasts approximately 2 hours including a refreshment break.
