Delightful English country garden
Full of variety, this charming garden shows the English country style at its best.
Peaceful water gardens and herbaceous borders, with organically shaped topiary, demonstrate an imaginative use of colour and planting, creating unexpected vistas.
Stroll through the arboretum with its wonderful species of trees and naturally planted spring bulbs.
We will be busy during the winter months looking after our beautiful garden and preparing for the new season. If you want to see what's going on, we have regular updates from the garden team on our Facebook page.
Join us to share your own Courts Garden photos and experiences right here.
