Garden for all seasons

The Repton inspired landscape at Antony, with its sweeping river views and unexpected nooks and crannies, is a joy to visit from spring to autumn. In the spring the camellias and magnolias in the Woodland Garden (not National Trust but free to Trust members) should not be missed and in the summer the Summer Garden is a delight. Make sure you don't miss the intricate Knot Garden on your visit as well.

Sculpture in the garden

A very special part of Antony's appeal is the modern sculpture scattered round the garden. From the 'Hypercone', by Simon Thomas and the 'Magnolia Gate', by James Horrobin, to the 'Water Cone', by William Pye, and the 'Dono', by Steven Cox, they really shouldn't be missed.

The Humphry Repton designed landscape affords expansive views down to the River Lynher. When Repton designed the garden at Antony in the early nineteenth century it was fashionable to have unbroken views down to water or follies making for a particularly spectacular walk.
