Levens Hall

The Yew and Box hedges are cut into the most fantastical shapes – some are geometric shapes but others are named: King and Queen chess pieces, the Judge’s Wig, the Howard lion, the Great Umbrellas, Queen Elizabeth and her Maids of Honour, a Jug of Morocco Ale and four peacocks.

Wander through the orchard to the herbaceous borders and enjoy the fountain and rose gardens, wildflower meadows, willow labyrinth and vegetable and herb gardens. The ha-ha is one of the earliest known examples in England, first mentioned in family papers in 1695.

The house is home to the Bagot family.

The house and gardens are closed on Fridays and Saturdays
