Lukesland Gardens, described in the Good Gardens Guide as ‘one of the finest gardens of its type in the South West’, offers the visitor 24 acres of flowering shrubs, rare trees and wild flowers.
The gardens at Lukesland lie in the beautiful valley of the Addicombe Brook, which cascades down from Dartmoor through ponds and over waterfalls towards the River Erme. At Lukesland the acid Dartmoor soil and mild climate of South Devon provide ideal conditions for a fine collection of camellias, rhododendrons and azaleas, some dating back to the original Victorian planting. Lukesland also has 4 Champion and over 40 Notable trees on the National Tree Register, many in its fascinating pinetum.
