All Year Round
Back to list
For the nature lovers, there is no doubt that Dorset has plenty to offer. Besides its contrasting landscapes of coastline with high cliffs, the rolling chalk hills and its wild heath-land, Dorset also boasts of some spectacular gardens.
From romantic Valley gardens to the more exotic Italian or Japanese garden, there are some fantastic gardens which are open to the public and should not be missed.
Here’s just a brief selection:
Kingston Lacy garden – A late-Victorian formal garden.
Forde Abbey – This elegant former Cistercian monastery and its 30 acres of award winning gardens is ranked as one of the top ten gardens in England.
Mapperton Gardens – A romantic valley garden reflecting at least three periods of history.
