A walled garden surrounded by a woodland garden. It is close to Chesil beach and separate from the site of the now-demolished house in which its maker, Lord Ilchester, lived. The old kitchen garden is given a sub-tropical air by the palm trees but the real attraction is the lush planting in the valley garden. It has some of the most extensive gunnera plantings in England. Abbotsbury has been described as 'Probably one of the best gardens of its type in the world.' It's type is the Italian phase of the Victorian Mixed Style.
