Thenford Gardens and Arboretum

Covering over seventy acres, the fabulous arboretum and gardens are a plantsman’s dream.

Discover lakes as well as other water features, a Walled Garden, Sculpture Garden, avenues, a Rose Garden and a Rockery.

A magnificent collection of over 600 varieties of snowdrop including unusual species such as ‘South Hayes’ and ‘Walrus’, all carefully labelled.

Don’t miss the fabulous herbaceous border to the south of the Walled Garden. Home to Michael and Anne Heseltine. The gardens are only open 18 days a year – they are extremely popular so book early to avoid disappointment.
