Brobury House Gardens

A Victorian house (1880) and garden with fine views of the Wye Valley. There is a terrace garden and a woodland garden. The garden has been fully restored since 1972.

Head Gardener's Comment

The eight acres of Brobury House Gardens are set against a sculptural backdrop of mature trees on an exquisitely beautiful section of the river Wye and paths lead through formal and natural planting to the watermeadow beside the historic Bredwardine Bridge.
The past seven years has seen a programme of re-design and development with many water features, a superb pergola (the young wisteria are growing fast)and a formal terrace to complement the garden conservatory. A small artoretum is being planted at the moment.

History

The garden was first established when the house was built in 1881. The trees and terraces gave the structure to the gardens that still exists. Grand greenhouses were built and half of these have been restored. Proir to 1881 the site was used as the vegetable garden for the rectory where Francis Kilvert lived and died. His mulberry tree still graces the main terrace lawn.
