The Walled Garden
Open the door to The Cowdray Walled Garden and step into a beautiful, historic, hidden gem that dates to 1550. A truly magical location to create long-lasting memories of a very special day. Once known as The Walled Privy, located alongside the magnificent Cowdray Ruins, a landmark visited by royalty including Henry VIII, Edward VI and Elizabeth I. In 1770 it is believed that British Landscape Architect, Capability Brown was employed on the Estate and was involved in the design and planning of the Walled Garden.
Today the country garden celebrates its history with a traditional planting scheme of cultivated areas which include a scented herb garden, a variety of rose and lavender borders, an orchard, herbaceous borders, and a central rectangular formal lawn surrounding an ornamental pond.
With the glorious garden and two reception rooms inside this Grade II listed building, we can guarantee that you and your guests will have the most magical day, making memories to last a lifetime.
