About the garden

Sitting in four acres, the Rectory was built in 1850 for Reverend Arthur Lucton Childe and designed by architect Abraham Perkins from Worcester.

The present owners Stephen and Paula Morgan purchased the property in 2004, the gardens previously being used as a mini golf course. For some fun and as keen gardeners Stephen and Paula set about creating gardens that incorporated a variety of styles and themes, before opening the gardens to the public.

Stephen had trained in horticulture and worked on a number of gold medal large gardens at the Chelsea and Hampton Court shows. Over the years he had acquired a number of feature sculptures from Herefordshire and beyond and used these to create the themes seen in the gardens today. They are designed to provide fun and interest in gardening, as well as take you on a journey around the world and beyond into a mythical world. Water features play a major part as they add sound and movement to the gardens

Ralph Court Gardens has over 12 amazing imaginative gardens set in the grounds of a gothic rectory. Even garden has seating, allowing the visitor to relax and take in the details. The garden has influences from all over the world, including Italy and Africa. The 3-acre garden is also wheelchair friendly and all areas are accessible.

An enormous amount of planning every year ensures that not only do the gardens grow the very best varieties but delivers a succession of top quality fresh vegetables, herbs and fruit throughout the year. Colin our Head Chef, is passionate about only using fresh ingredients grown in our own gardens less than a hundred feet from our kitchen, and picked within minutes before they are used in his dishes.
