Blarney Castle’s gardens are one of the most visited in Ireland. The 60 acres are a joy to explore. Visit the prehistoric Fern Garden, a deadly Poison Garden, and our magical Rock Close with its ancient Yew trees and druidic stones. Make a wish on the famous wishing steps while the waterfall cascades alongside you. Stroll by the lake, river side and woodlands or in the dazingly beautiful arboretums. The gardens are constantly changing, and evolving environment and each visit is a new experience and don’t forget to kiss the famous Blarney Stone which has the traditional power of conferring eloquence on all who kiss it. The word Blarney was introduced into the English language by Queen Elizabeth I and is described as pleasant talk, intended to deceive without offending. The stone is set in the wall below the battlements, and to kiss it, one has to lean backwards (grasping an iron railing) from the parapet walk!

Quintessentially English - historic buildings, links with Capability Brown and glorious countryside. Slightly exotic - flamboyant, and loud, peacocks wander the streets. Independent minded – a quirky range of shops, plus award-winning food and drink. And occasionally a film set - Ross Poldark brooded his way around here... The Wiltshire market town of Corsham is something of a hidden treasure, and is just 10 miles from Bath.

Gravetye Manor is a 4 red star hotel and 1 Michelin Star restaurant based in West Sussex. The 35 acre gardens include a formal Flower Garden, meadow and lake, orchard, Wild Garden and 1.5acre walled Kitchen Garden. This original Victorian Kitchen garden provides the Chefs with up to 95% of their fresh produce in the Summer months and is the main driving force behind the inspiration and seasonality of the menus served in our restaurant. Originally designed by famed pioneering Victorian gardener, William Robinson, the gardens are now Grade II listed and maintained by our Head Gardener, Tom Coward. Robinson lived at Gravetye Manor from 1884 and used the gardens to realise his ideas about more naturalised planting, something which challenged the regimented planting style which was prominent in Victorian gardening at the time. The gardens are available to all patrons of the hotel to visit but are not open to the general public. Please call the hotel to book before visiting. Our dress code for the restaurant is smart casual. Smart jeans are acceptable and in the evening most men do tend to wear a jacket. Children over seven years are welcome in our dining room.

Filled with the spirit and character of Edith, Lady Londonderry, the gardens reveal the history, grandeur and enchantment of Mount Stewart, bringing it to life in the glorious celebration of people, power and plants. With imagination, colour and passion, Edith created a sanctuary for world renowned guests, a playground for children and a place alive with her spirit of adventure.

By emulating Edith, Lady Londonderry’s unique style of gardening, Mount Stewart delights and by using newly discovered plants and new cultivars and varieties, is contemporary. Scented plants will always find a place at Mount Stewart. Edith famously would not have a rose in the garden which did not carry a scent, but she also used Rhododendron and Oriental Lilies to make eaux de toilette and essential oils. The newly opened Rose Garden has been restored to Edith’s 1938 design and displays an array of scented Roses, Lilies and other scented plants, a further dimension to this individual garden. A visit to Mount Stewart truly is a tonic of the soul.
