Summer days out at Sheffield Park
Discover a garden that excites the senses. Summer brings vibrant blooms filling the place with colour and perfume. Winding paths, grand trees, lakes, cascades and bridges provide a varied landscape to explore as well as quiet spots to stretch out a picnic blanket. Off the beaten track nature thrives in the 300 acres of parkland and woods that surround the garden.
Our vast collection of trees and large shrubs are planted to create vistas that enhance the feeling of scale and grandeur of the property. The garden has received a Grade I listing and contains over 60 champion trees.
Water has always been a key element of the landscape at Sheffield Park and our five lakes have become an iconic feature, which is much photographed and enjoyed by everyone who visits. Their hand-dug, clay-lined construction creates dramatic reflections of the carefully planned planting that surrounds them. Connected by a waterfall and cascades, the calming sound of moving water can be enjoyed around the garden. Don't miss the spectacular waterlily display throughout the summer months.
Walk Wood is located at the back of the garden, and offers a different experience to the lakes and surrounding landscaped areas. Containing paths originally laid out in the eighteenth century, Walk Wood offers a cool, shady stroll on a hot day. In here you will also find our sculpture trail created by local artist Keith Pettit.
