Step into spring at Berrington Hall

The walled garden and pleasure grounds here at Berrington is ‘Capability’ Brown’s final masterpiece. Brown designed them to withstand the test of time and today it’s still as full of life as it would have been then. It’s all here, just waiting to be explored.

Each year everything in Berrington’s walled garden and pleasure grounds (with the help of our Gardeners and Garden Volunteers) begin to grow. We have plenty of varieties of flowers throughout the grounds from daffodils to vegetables from the Vegetable Garden.

These different flowers, plants and vegetables all have a different role in the warmer months. Some are here for the visitors to simply enjoy, and they have grown naturally in the same place that they do each year. Others grow to be used practically, for example the parsnips grown in the Vegetable Garden are used in the tea-room to make soup.

The walled garden and pleasure grounds have also maintained their Georgian style and they are ideal for a simple stroll with well gravelled footpaths and plants to discover. Although there have been alterations since ‘Capability’ Brown’s original design, you can still enjoy the gardens in the same way the Georgians with one of these simple walks.

We also have our installation, ‘LOOK! LOOK! LOOK!’ by Heather and Ivan Morison to enjoy in the centre of the walled garden. This piece has been created with the Georgian history of Berrington in mind and the history behind the Georgian’s love of ‘eye-catchers’ in their gardens. Why not come and take a ‘LOOK!’?

The development of these gardens however is all thanks to the support of our visitors. Thanks to you all of the money we raise is going towards the 'Berrington Garden Project’. This is a project which is designed to conserve and revive these precious gardens.

As well as this, the project aims to conserve the walls of the walled garden, whichc are a rare 'Capability' Brown design. It is a rare garden for it is only one of two of Brown's gardens that is shaped in this way. Without this conservation, it's under the gardens are under the threat of decay. Why not have a look at the visuals of how the garden might look if we are able to reinstate Brown's original designs?
