Things to see and do at Overbeck’s Garden
Discover Overbeck’s garden, often considered to be more reminiscent of the tropics than Devon. Plants from around the globe can be found thriving in this microclimate nestled into the cliffside overlooking the Kingsbridge Estuary.
An intimate garden area with evocative aromas and fantastic views up the Salcombe estuary.
Formerly the tennis court, the colourful borders in the Statue Garden are a highlight at any time of year.
Once a quarry that provided stone for the house and garden walls, now home to an array of plants with striking foliage.
Olive trees set within a meadow and some of the best sweeping coastal views in the garden.
Lush tropical planting and, of course, banana plants, which produce fruit most years.
Packed full of botanical treasures, from palms and grasses to Mediterranean plants and succulents.
Orange Tree Store
Potted orange trees are overwintered in this glasshouse and moved out for the summer to make way for a display of botanical curiosities.
Temperate planting including Japanese maples, magnolias and spring bulbs. Head to the ‘Lookout’ for a tantalising glimpse of sandy beaches below.
Silent Space is a charity that encourages gardens open to the public to reserve an area where visitors can take time to reflect quietly and to enjoy the beauty of the garden and the sounds of nature without distractions.
During term time, Overbeck's Garden has joined Silent Space by dedicating the seating area within our beloved Banana Garden to the scheme.
On Mondays to Thursdays between 2pm and 3:45pm, switch off from the distractions of your hectic, techno-driven life and immerse yourself in the tranquility of that moment, enjoying the sounds of the garden.
