Petwood Gardens

Take a leisurely stroll through the Petwood grounds to absorb the ambiance of quiet lawns, vibrant flowers and elegant features of Harold Peto's most northerly garden.

Aside from the splendid "Tudor to Jacobean" style appearance of the house itself, hotel guests and visitors of all ages are drawn to the majestic Edwardian gardens that surround the Petwood. 

The Petwood house and gardens has been used to entertain the great and the good over the years - you can follow in the footsteps of statesmen, aristocrats , actors, sporting greats, and wartime heroes when you visit.

The gardens were created by famous British landscape architect and garden designer Harold Peto in the early 20th century and are thought to be Peto's most northerly work.

A highlight of the gardens is the rhododendron walk, which delightfully bursts with colour in the late spring. Thirty acres of woodlands provide more pleasant short walks in the grounds and a gentle stroll is a very civilized way to follow breakfast or a light lunch in the hotel.

One of the Petwood's Classic English Afternoon Teas on the terrace is a sublime option to experience the gardens on a warm afternoon, affording fine views and pure relaxation. Plus there is a choice of classic garden games on the front lawn, including croquet and giant pick-up sticks, available to get the whole family involved (just ask at reception).
