A delightful garden

A view towards the conservatory at The Courts Garden, Holt in April

This curious English country garden is full of differently styled garden rooms, each with their own surprise, testament to its gardeners past and present who have all brought something new to The Courts.

Formal garden

With charming topiary and colourful borders the tranquil formal garden is sure to delight.

Impressive sculptured yew trees and fragrant flowers fringe the paths to the beautiful manicured lawns.

In April, colourful tulips line The Courts Garden's paths.

The atmospheric and ever-changing arboretum displays something new and inspiring every season.

A relaxed contrast to the formal gardens, the arboretum is home to a tree species from all over the world. How many can you identify? You can test your knowledge with one of our trusty tree maps, available from visitor reception.
