About the garden

Tucked away from the busyness of modern life, with breathtaking views of the Malvern Hills, Spetchley Park Gardens is a Worcestershire gem. Discover everything from beautiful borders in the walled garden and luscious lawns to tranquil waters and the Melon Yard containing pineapple-scented flowers.

Every generation of the Berkeley family, who have owned Spetchley for over 400 years, has helped shape the garden into what you see today by filling it with unusual and interesting flora from across the world. Spring brings glowing Daffodils accompanied by elegant Magnolias and summer welcomes exotic plants while autumn transforms the landscape into a sea of deep orange, yellow and crimson. The 30-acre garden is also home to one of the most magnificent and largest private collections of Peonies.

There’s no need to leave this glorious oasis to eat – indulge in a homemade and locally sourced picnic from the Granary Coffee Shop within the garden. The plant shop has new stock weekly so you can take part of the garden with you.

Very fine place to visit on a hot sunny day. Unfortunately the Gardens were closing at 15:00 instead of 17:00 ( Sun 17 July 2022) which have derailed our plans for a lunch followed by a garden walk on our first day of our holiday. Inspite this we have enjoyed the garden enormously and staff were very helpful and kind. We even managed to get a take away lunch ! We recommend this beautiful garden .

Soooo lovely. I went with my husband and three children (which cost a very reasonable £21!). We were looking for somewhere to stop mid-journey on holiday. The gardens were beautiful, perfectly imperfect. I loved how there were parts left to nature, parts beautifully maintained and some parts in progress. I felt we got a glimpse of all the wonderful childhoods spent on hazy summer days running around the grounds. The cafe had delicious cakes although perhaps a little expensive (probably accurate though when compared to NT cafes) the carrot cake was particularly good. The estate's church was stunning, the views by the house were amazing. We will absolutely visit again if we are coming anywhere close again. Some comments have mentioned the fact that dogs were not allowed, having 3 little children for us it was actually lovely not to have to worry about the inevitable dog no2's!

It's easy to spend the whole day within these gardens.. even hours sitting by the lakeside alone.. all so calm and tranquil. Didn't want my time there to come to an end!

Nice picturesque outdoor location to stroll around. Nice cake and coffee. Shame they only take plastic at the entry and I only had cash. Fortunately another customer paid me in with her card and I gave her the cash.

Outstanding place to vist! Especially in the sunshine. You could simply walk around the grounds, for day's. There's a nice coffee shop, yoga studio. The lake is absolutely stunning.
