Cerney House Gardens

North Cerney

Wildlife & Gardens Experience

Cerney House Gardens is a romantic, 40-acre garden estate. These beautiful gardens were once described by Country Living as ‘what most people aspire to in their gardens – and few achieve’. As you explore you will find a fabulous Victorian walled garden, a vegetable garden, and a knot garden. There is also an orchard, fragrant bluebell woods, a beautiful rose walk and a rockery.

Once a simple garden overlooked by the Elizabethan Cerney House. These gardens underwent a transformation in the 1800s into a beautiful estate. Following a spell as a WWII hospital when the walled garden became a sheep pasture, the house and garden were later purchased by Sir Michael and Lady Angus. During their lifetime they transformed the gardens into the romantic and beautiful place that they are today.

Cerney House Gardens are open all year round. It is lovely to see the ebb and flow of the garden as the seasons change. During the winter months, when frost and even snow carpets the ground there is still plenty to see. Cerney House is known for its swathes of snowdrops which carpet the woodlands. As the months turn to spring the gardens begin to display their vibrant colours. First come the acid-yellow daffodils and purple aconites, followed by tulips and that most iconic of English spring flowers, the bluebell. The gardens are at their most impressive during the summer with the rose walk in full bloom. As autumn approaches the trees turn to gold and the light mellows before the garden returns to slumber.

Take your children on a treasure trail, pick up a hot drink and slice of cake from the Bothy Tea Room. Then visit the Potting Shed shop and buy a little piece of the garden home with you.

To note: The walled garden is accessible to electric wheelchairs and there is accessible parking. However, visitors in manual wheelchairs may find the gravel paths and inclines difficult. Dogs are welcome.

The Victorian walled garden was once described by Country Living Magazine as, “What most people aspire to in their gardens, and few achieve.”
