Summer in the Garden 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 acres of parkland and woods that surround the garden.
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.
Water has always been a key element of the landscape at Sheffield Park and our five lakes have become an iconic feature, offering a cooling view on a hot summer's day. Our 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.
