At Pashley you will discover 11 acres of beautiful borders and vistas - the culmination of a lifetime of passion for gardening and an admiration of the tradition of the English country garden.  These award winning gardens are family owned and maintained - visitors often express delight at the attention to detail displayed throughout and the intimate, peaceful atmosphere.

All the ingredients of the English country garden are present - sweeping herbaceous borders, ha-ha, lawns, box hedges, historic walled garden, inspiring kitchen garden, wildlife, venerable trees and the Grade I listed house as a backdrop.  Then, of course, the plants!  Borders overflowing with perennials and annuals – the look changing through the seasons, but always abundantly filled, and each garden ‘room’ planted in a different colour theme.

Pashley is also renowned for fantastic displays of tulips, roses and dahlias.  The annual Tulip Festival features 35,000 tulips and celebrated its 25th year in 2019.

Add to all this a Café and Terrace with excellent garden views serving delicious homemade lunches, scones and cakes; Sculpture and Art Exhibitions; a Gift Shop with Plant Sales; and a friendly, knowledgeable team waiting to welcome you, and the recipe for a wonderful day out is complete.

Group rates / free coach parking / coach driver incentives.
