We have over 33 acres of gardens at Brympton House for our guests to enjoy. They are continually being developed and restored. There are benches strategically positioned around the grounds for you to sit and enjoy the views. We have an Apple Orchard with a Japanese garden behind, and a path down the side of the South Terrace that leads you from the upper gardens to the lake and down to the Walled Garden and the Tennis Court.
Please be advised that the gardens can be steep in places and not all the paths are level. Steps are made from local rock and can be slippery when wet. Please take extra care in the gardens as even in bright daylight, pathways can be dark, undulating and unforgiving.
For your own safety, areas / steps may be cordoned off and you are asked not to step over these barriers.
