Easton Lodge

The Gardens at Easton Lodge were created in the early 20th century for Daisy, Countess of Warwick. They are the only example in East Anglia of the work of the landscape designer, Harold Peto.

The Italian garden includes a 30m long water lily pond, surrounded by stone balustrades, and is set within flower beds.

The recreated Tree House stands on stilts with views down the lime avenue with its carpet of daffodils in the spring.

The Walled Kitchen Garden has been partially restored and once again produces soft fruit, vegetables and cut flowers – seasonal produce can be bought on Open Days.

The Glade was originally flanked by pine, lime and poplar trees with a Japanese Garden leading down to the lake. Over the years, many trees have been added and today a new Japanese garden is taking shape.

On Open Days, visitors are able to wander around the gardens of Warwick House (see History section below)

The gardens are open on Thursdays from April until the end of October – check the Easton Lodge website for details.

Don’t miss the fascinating archives which are on display by the ticket office.
