The garden at Newark Park
The garden is laid out over three levels. The lawns and the walled garden provide the perfect backdrop for Newark House.

Around the garden
The Glade Walk takes you from the quirky folly to the rockery beneath Newark House. In contrast, the lakeside garden has a relaxing and romantic feel. You can sit and watch the ducks swimming on the small lake or venture into the charming, historic summerhouse. If you're after colour, the borders won't disappoint. The seasonal borders on the south terrace are real showstoppers and provide plenty of colour.
If you're looking for the wow factor, there are many seasonal specials to look out for at Newark.
Snowdrop season starts typically at the end of winter, where Newark will have carpets of snowdrops around the garden.
The appearance of golden daffodils is often the first sign of spring, and you'll find them blooming around the garden. Brush away the cobwebs and take a refreshing walk down to the lakeside garden where you can see banks of these bright blooms.
The peacocks that roam the garden are very friendly and love to call out to their friends. They live at Newark Park full time so you're almost certain to see one.
Please don't feed the peacocks as they can peck, and human food isn't very good for them.
