Northcourt Manor Gardens

Newport

The garden rises 100 feet from the stream to the terraced woodland walks with distant sea views. The terraced walks to the north lead down to the one acre organic productive walled kitchen garden, where garden produce for visitors is grown. The garden enjoys a very special micro-climate nestled below the Downs between the chalk and greens and ridges.

Ventnor Botanic Garden

Ventnor

Ventnor Botanic Garden on the Isle of Wight is Britain's hottest garden. There is a collection of over 30,000 rare and sub-tropical plants and trees spread across 22-acres of gardens. The plantings are based on geographical regions of the world.

National Trust's Mottistone Gardens and Estate

Isle of Wight

Set in a sheltered valley this magical garden is full of surprises, with shrub-filled banks, hidden pathways and colourful herbaceous borders. Surrounding an attractive Elizabethan manor house this 20th-century garden is experimenting with a Mediterranean-style planting scheme to take advantage of its southerly location.

Northwood House & Park

Cowes

Northwood House has 17-acres of parkland and gardens that are maintained by a team of volunteers. Several trees illustrate the Victorian fashion for collecting rare species at the time the Park was established by the Ward family. Areas of the park can be hired for outdoor events like fairs and rallys.

Farringford House

Freshwater

Farringford is a Grade 1 Listed Building and was the main domicile residence of Alfred Lord Tennyson, Poet Laureate, from 1856 until his death in 1892. As part of the comprehensive restoration programme at Farringford, the grounds are also being returned to their Tennyson-era appearance. The main attraction is the walled kitchen garden, which Tennyson loved to walk and sit in with his family and guests. The garden is a work-in-progress, and we very much hope our visitors will return in future years to see how it develops with each new phase of planting. Elsewhere in the grounds, visitors can enjoy a walk round the re-created historic parkland.
