A stunning ten acre garden restored by Australian garden designer Marylyn Abbott over the last twenty years. Combining a classical Lakefield design with a blend of formal and informal planting, English traditions and Australian flair, West Green offers intimacy and spectacle in a country setting. Access to the beautiful Victorian greenhouses is included and a visit to the formally planted vegetable garden is a must! West Green also offers a Tea Room and shop, is entirely accessible for those with limited mobility and each year hosts the West Green House Season of Music and Opera in July, Please note that West Green House is privately owned and not open to the general public.

I visited with Canadian friends prior to their return home and found the venue great value for money. The gardens are beautiful and entry is very reasonable. I would advise checking on the open days as I think it is closed early in the week.

I had found these gardens on the National Trust website but was surprised on arrival to find no mention of National Trust on any of the signing. It would appear that NT gave the property up to a private owner some years ago but there...More
