Cranborne Manor and Gardens, near Wimborne
This delightful garden surrounds the ancient Cranborne Manor House set in the beautiful Dorset countryside.
Cranborne Manor Gardens is surely one of the most beautiful gardens in Dorset.
As you approach the house from the Garden centre there is a fine avenue of trees which once led to the front of the Manor House. The courtyard, in front of the house, has a wonderful steel water-lily sculpture by Angela Connor.
To the side you will enter the walled garden with its colourful planting, bordering a small orchard. On the opposite side there is a lovely rose garden and further along a vegetable garden.
At the back of the house is the 'White Garden' very much the same as it was in the 19th century.
Lots more interest with a Sundial Garden, herb garden, and small herbaceous garden and a stream running through the grounds.
This garden has evolved over the years, each generation adding their bit. Les Dinan is the head gardener and with his brother Chris they are responsible for it being the garden it is today.
2018 Cranborne Manor Gardens open to the public on Wednesdays throughout the summer (from the first Wednesday in March to the last Wednesday in September) but visit website to confirm, also some Sunday openings. Parking, tickets and access are all available at the adjacent Garden Centre.
