Godinton House

The Jacobean house is surrounded by 12 acres of garden including topiary and terraced lawns.

East of the house lie Pan Garden, the Croquet Lawn and the stunning curvy-edged herbaceous borders which lead to the Lily Pond.

Near the house is the newly designed Rose Garden planted with a mixture of roses and herbaceous plants.

The Italian Garden is a perfect place to sit with roses and clematis tumbling over the walls, subdued plantings of silver, blue and green surrounding a rectangular pond.

Don’t miss the Walled Garden with Fern House, Alpine House and newly constructed Ornamental Greenhouse. There are beds of cutting flowers, vegetables, espaliered fruit trees and a spectacular delphinium border.

Open Tuesday to Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays from April until October.

Tearoom open occasionally.

Historic Houses members visit for free except on event days.
