Spetchley Park Gardens
Nestling in the heart of Worcestershire is one of this country’s greatest secrets. Surrounded by parkland, largely unchanged for over 400 years, lays the 30 acre paradise of Spetchley Park Gardens. Spetchley is not a garden of formal cut lawns or manicured beds but rather a wondrous display of plants, shrubs and trees woven into a garden of many rooms and vistas. It boasts some of the finest private collections of plants in the country with Daffodil, Iris, Lillies, Peonies and magnolias vibrant in the spring and leading into summer when the enormous herbaceous borders come into their own.
Spetchley is a garden that is constantly changing and adapting and is a treasure for everyone whether it is plant enthusiasts or those seeking a tranquil oasis in which to relax. With its wonderful tea room selling delicious hot and cold food it allows visitors to completely unwind and enjoy its beautiful setting. You can pop into the Interpretation Centre to learn more of its history or plants or stroll down to the Deer Park to marvel at the majestic herds of Red and Fallow Deer. Please don’t forget to visit the Plant Centre where you can purchase beautiful plants and shrubs to put into your garden.
