Newstead Abbey

Explore the formal gardens surrounding the 12th century Abbey.

In the Great Garden, discover the monument to Byron’s favourite dog, the herbaceous borders, the Spanish Garden and the Eagle Pond. The lake got its name from the discovery of a lectern that had been thrown into the water by the monks during the Dissolution.

From the small Walled Garden, meander through the Rose Garden to the Fernery, American and Venetia’s Garden.

Explore the Rockery and the magnificent Japanese Garden with its cascades, garden ornaments and stepping stones across the streams.

Don’t miss the Monk’s Garden to the north of the Abbey and laid out by Colonel Wildman.

The house is open most weekends.
