Rousham House & Gardens
Sandford St Martin
Wildlife & Gardens Experience
Designed by William Kent, Rousham remains unspoilt and uncommercialised. Spend the day exploring – there are walled gardens with herbaceous borders, a pigeon house, kitchen garden, and the park is home to a herd of Longhorn cattle. With something for everyone, including water features, fruit trees, statues, and fountains, we suggest you pack a delicious picnic and stop, breathe, and soak up the beautiful, idyllic sights and heady scents of one of England’s most important gardens. With thousands of ways to walk around, the spectacular gardens are enough to keep visitors entertained for hours. If you’re still keen to see more, the lovely manor house, built in 1635 and modified by William Kent in the 1740s, is open by appointment.
To note: Dogs are not allowed in the gardens. No children under 15 are allowed in the gardens without prior permission.
