Notice: Over the next couple of weeks we are having some essential resurfacing works done on the main drive leading to the house. During this time, access will be restricted and challenging for those with disabilities and we are not able to run a full buggy service. We suggest visiting after this period and we will keep you updated on the progress of these works. For any queries, please contact us on 01794 340757. Thank you for your understanding.
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.
Quentin Blake & Friends
Opening 19 July
One of the nation’s best-loved artists comes to Mottisfont this summer in a new exhibition of work by Quentin Blake and other leading contemporary children’s illustrators. See here for more information.
To celebrate, we have a special Mottisfont Golden Ticket competition on our social media. Click the link below to find out more.
Well worth a look...
The lavender at Mottisfont is bursting into life, creating a sea of purple and filling the air with beautiful fragrance.
You will find lavender dotted around the grounds, but we recommend you follow the scent to the north section of the walled garden, and then on to the café to try our tasty lavender shortbread.
We have two stunning outdoor theatre performances this year:
The Tempest - 25 July (Sold out)
The Pantaloons' History of Britain - 23 August
Bring a picnic and get ready to enjoy a lovely summer's evening with us.
But book quickly to make sure that you get a ticket.
We have a new children's play area called Wild Play, pick up a map from our Visitor Reception and get jumping, climbing and splashing around with us.
