Welcome to ‘The Garden House’ owned and administered by the Fortescue Garden Trust, an independent charity. Discover one of the most romantic gardens in England – lift your spirits, gain ideas or simply relax!
Explore a beautiful garden steeped in history, set in a tranquil Devon valley – a source of pure joy and inspiration. The garden is several gardens in one, and its 10 acres glory in a huge and diverse plant collection – nearly 6,000 plant varieties to admire. Outstanding examples of naturalistic planting can be found at the Acer Glade, Wildflower and Bulb Meadows and Cottage Garden. The Summer Garden with its 2015 planted swathes of richly coloured perennials is now firmly established. The Jubilee Arboretum with its lake, bridges and tumbling water provides yet another dimension.

Enjoy great food in the Tearoom and select from a wide range of quality plants in Plant Sales … and children will love the ‘Find the Animal Trail’!
