About the garden

East Lambrook Manor Gardens is the iconic and quintessentially English cottage garden created by the celebrated 20th-century plantswoman and gardening writer Margery Fish. It was here that she developed her own style of gardening, combining old-fashioned and contemporary plants in a relaxed and informal manner to create a garden of immense beauty.

Charming pathways wind through the garden, guiding visitors past the abundant borders and the noteworthy collections of Hellebores, Hardy Geraniums and Snowdrops. You will also find a superb specialist hardy plant nursery - it’s the perfect opportunity to find a real head-turner for your own plot.

East Lambrook has been recognised by English Heritage and awarded its Grade 1 status. It remains one of Britain’s most celebrated cottage gardens and provides plenty of inspiration for this style of planting.

Mad plant garden. Not sure it works aesthetically but you can imagine its famous creator pottering with pleasure. Good nursery.

When the snow drops are out really lovely to see and will make a lovely trip wherever. Nice cup of tea 🍵 and as always that piece of cake 🎂.

This is a beautiful little garden, cottage style, originally made by Margery Fish. It's not big but it is clever in its planting and layout. The car park is on the opposite side of the road which makes it nice to approach the house head on. The house is now entirely made over to a tea room, toilets and a small gallery space. You cannot enter the house or gardens without encountering steps and narrow paths, so not wheelchair friendly, and it would be spoilt if it was. There is a fantastic collection of snowdrops here, so February is a good time to visit. Plant selling area takes over a fair area in the garden and some paths within stitches you can't enter.
