About the garden

On a sheltered plot near Leominster in Herefordshire, you’ll find Stockton Bury Gardens, a quintessential English country garden, which regularly graces the ‘must visit UK garden’ lists compiled by papers. And for good reason. A beautiful old building cloaked in Wisteria greets visitors, who can stroll under archways made of flowers and down hedge-lined pathways leading to beautifully planted borders.

The four-acre garden is also home to a medieval pigeon house, tranquil water gardens and an original Victorian Garden Kitchen, which supplies the cafe with fresh, zero air-mile fruit and veggies. Children are sure to be mesmerised by the Monkey Puzzle Tree, while the dappled shade of the orchard provides welcome relief on sunnier days.

Created by keen plantsmen Raymond Treasure and Gordon Fenn, Stockton Bury has been in the Treasure family for five generations and much of the garden was pasture until the pair transformed it into this well-acclaimed garden that is now about 35 years old.

If you’re curious about the history of the garden, feel free to stop by the museum before you leave. Though we’d make sure to steal our last glimpses of the garden from the Pavilion, it's also a tranquil spot to take in picturesque views of the rolling countryside.

These amazing gardens are absolutely beautiful. So many different plants, many we've never seen before. Water features, a small museum , secluded areas out of the sun too. PLUS a very good cafeteria that's licensed too!!! Amazing ciders on offer. NOT TO BE MISSED.

Beautiful gardens well worth a visit. Very well presented with a wide variety of plants and trees. An enviable veg garden too. Excellent cafe serving light lunches at reasonable prices. Very good friendly service. Plenty of car parking, some in the shade. Highly recommended.

This is a delightful place. There are a few steps around the garden but they can be avoided if necessary. Beautiful garden.

The garden is beautifully maintained and the planting is magnificent. You really feel that you need to keep going back to "see what it looks like in full bloom, or in the autumn or when the veg are at there best. Probably a good idea to buy that season ticket! There are always lovely plants to buy once you have been inspired (although you can get to the plants without paying for entry) and there are some really lovely food in the cafe too - thoroughly recommend the lavender shortbread, jacket potato with coronation chicken and the sausage rolls but probably not on the same visit 😀
