A romantic house and gallery set in beautiful riverside gardens

Ancient trees, bubbling brooks and rolling lawns frame this lovely old house. Crafted from a medieval priory, it is full of surprises, with art that intrigues and delights. Come back throughout the year to see different exhibitions in the gallery and the latest installations by our artists in residence.

Carpets of spring bulbs, a stunning walled rose garden, rich autumn leaves and a colourful winter garden make Mottisfont a feast for the senses all year round.

This autumn at Mottisfont...

Dazzling displays of colour

Throughout autumn, Mottisfont becomes ablaze with vibrant colour as reds, oranges and gold shades fill the grounds as the leaves change on our stately plane and beech trees.

Make the most of this season - set off around the grounds for a tranquil walk or join us for a free guided walk by one of our brilliant volunteer outdoor guides.
