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.

Current exhibition

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.

Fabulous Theatre

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.

Summer Fun

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.

A Place for Art

Our new art project is being headed by Louise O'Reilly, a visual artist and illustrator. During her residency she will be fulfilling an early childhood ambition of becoming a medieval illuminator.
