Notice: Due to the high winds predicted for Wednesday, we may have to close the garden. Please call or check the website for updates before you arrive. We have taken the precaution of postponing the bluebell walk planned for tomorrow.

Acres of landscape garden bordered by historic parkland and woodland

The garden is a horticultural work of art formed through centuries of landscape design, with influences of 'Capability' Brown and Humphry Repton. Four lakes form the heart of the garden, with paths circulating through the glades and wooded areas surrounding them. Each owner has left their impression, which can still be seen today in the layout of the lakes, the construction of Pulham Falls, the planting of Palm Walk and the many different tree and shrub species from around the world.

Our historic parkland forms a larger footprint for the Sheffield Park estate. Dating back several centuries, it has had many uses including a deer park and WWII camp, and is now grazed with livestock and home to our natural woodland play trail in Ringwood Toll. The River Ouse runs across the bottom of the parkland and the original meanders are still visible winding across the meadow. This area has been transformed into a wildlife haven and is home to a diverse range of species including kingfishers, birds of prey, butterflies, and dragonflies.

Spring is well and truly upon us and the bluebells, Rhododendrons and Azaleas, are all in flower. Around every corner splashes of colour and a heady fragrance will tempt you to explore further.
