About the garden

Fans of Roses won’t want to miss Stow Hall’s magnificent display with over 200 species flourishing throughout the varied and intriguing linked gardens. But these perennials aren’t the only appeal of the 20-acre space in Norfolk.

Meander through the Courtyard Gardens with walls that are delicately enveloped in beautiful old Roses and Wisteria, discover the sunken Dutch Garden or admire the striking topiary. This garden is not only a treat for the eyes - inhale the invigorating aroma of plants and herbs in the Cottage Garden and explore the Walled Kitchen Garden, home to an arched tunnel covered in Apple and Pear trees, competition-size vegetables and an orchard containing over 100 delicious Apple varieties. Remember to seek out the Fern Leaf Beech – one of the quirkiest trees in the gardens.

Lovingly nurtured by generations of the Hare family, these gardens have a rich history accompanied by a sense of serenity. The benches make ideal spots for pausing in the sunlight with refreshments from the self-service tea room.

There is something very special about Stow Gardens. They have survived 3 houses on the site. The walled garden with its old apple tree arches and quince avenue very peaceful, and there are some wonderful nature trees in the park. Plants for sale and excellent tea room. Open on Wednesdays.

Absolute gem of a place. Beautiful gardens, even at this time of year. Wide variety of plants, shrubs, vegetables and fruit. Very reasonable admission fee (£5). A reasonably priced self service cafe is available and a few items such as Stow Hall notebooks etc are available as gifts. I highly recommend a visit and the annual pass which is excellent value. Well done to Stow Hall for keeping this wonderful garden open.

I would recommend going here for seeing flowers, plants and trees in a natural setting rather than uniform , it was lovely walking around without feeling rushed. We will be returning now we've found this little gem close to home.

A lovely relaxing and peaceful saunter through the gardens. Massive Cedar trees, fruit trees of apples, pears, fig, plum cherry. Topiaried bushes and pretty roses throughout. The crenallated, walled garden entrance is beautiful. Self-service tea room and different varieties of apples to purchase as well as plants to buy for your own garden.

When I went to the gardens I thought they were seriously beautiful and I love the self catering cafe that there is. I also love the peacocks that stroll the gardens and the village. It’s a shame I can’t go at the moment. I can’t wait to be able to go back!
