Shobrooke Park Gardens Open Days

The beautiful Shobrooke Park Gardens will be opening their doors to visitors this Spring 2024.

The 200 acre Shobrooke Park was laid out in the 1850s.

The house was lost in a fire in 1946. The grand garden remains, with its Portland stone terracing and flowering shrubs under ancient oaks, all especially magnificent in the Spring.

Wandering through the oak woodland, on to the formal terracing and past the walled kitchen gardens to the American Grounds there are ever changing colours.

Enjoy the views out over Shobrooke Park with its cascade of ponds.

Visiting in March you will see camellias, magnolias and rhododendrons amongst yellow daffodils.

April sees the woodland carpeted with blue bells.

In May the spring flowers fade but the diversity of the shrubs continues in whites, blues, yellows and pinks.

The scented azaleas in the American grounds are worth the walk.

Please note:

The garden is rough and steep, in places, so unfortunately not suitable for people with mobility problems or wheelchairs. Stout boots and walking sticks are sensible for your visit. Children must be closely supervised, at all times, as our Portland Stone walls make inviting climbing frames. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate dogs.
