The Gardens

A sustainable environment for body and mind

Take in the far-reaching views across the lake to the folly; savour the sights and scents in the formal gardens, stroll the pathways through the parkland, or simply take a seat, and soak up the views.

Families can enjoy natural play amongst the flora and fauna in our beautiful grounds, pond dipping at the Lily Pond, wildlife hunting in the woodland, and expending any excess energy in the play area.

The lovingly restored walled garden provides produce for the Tea Room, just as it would have served Kiplin’s family kitchen. Cut flowers are grown for display in the Hall, and are also sold alongside fruit and vegetables on the Produce Cart. The small Garden Museum to the rear of the Walled Garden helps piece together the earth’s rich history.

What to see at Kiplin

Walled Garden

The fruit and vegetables begin to burst with new life and colour in Spring. The stone fruit espalier trees on the south facing wall begin to blossom early to late March, followed by the pear trees, and the apple that line the main garden path. Look out for the purple plume of chives!

The White Garden

A lovely place to sit and enjoy the formal arrangement of Spring Snowflakes, Hellebores and Tulips.

What to see at Kiplin

The Peninsula Wood

Home to a host of wild and planted flora from English and Spanish bluebells to cowslips, primroses, marsh marigolds, dog mercury, Arum Maculatum (Lord & Ladies) and foxgloves. The Peninsula Wood is also home to doronicum (like a yellow petaled daisy), which starts flowering at the end of May. The carpet of doronicum that spreads across the woodland creates the illusion of a yellowish haze throughout.
