Dartington Trust Grade II Listed Gardens near Totnes
A truly magnificent landscape garden most of which has been created in the 20th century, at the rear of Dartington Hall.
Experience a sense of tranquillity at Dartington's impressive Grade II* listed gardens, which have been shaped and inspired by the remarkable custodians of this special place for over 1,000 years.
Some of the highlights to be found in the 26 acres of tended grounds include an ancient yew tree which is at least 1500 years old, a 150 year old Lucombe Oak, a row of Sweet Chestnuts which are believed to be over 400 years old, an incredible magnolia collection and the Henry Moore 'Reclining Figure' sculpture which was designed specifically for Dartington, among many other delights to be discovered.
It is also the only example of landscape architect, Beatrix Farrand's work in the UK, as she was brought over by Dorothy and Leonard Elmhirst from America to redesign the courtyard in the 1930s.
Dartington is an RHS Partner Garden which means RHS members can visit free on Fridays.
