Set in the heart of the beautiful Rutland countryside Barnsdale has the largest collection of individually designed gardens in the UK. Originally set out over 13 years ago for BBC 2’s Gardeners’ World, the gardens have been open for the public to enjoy for 21 years. The gardens are a source of inspiration for all levels of gardener and non-gardener alike with new gardens and new ideas continuing to be developed each year. Our most recent development is The Winter Border, with the next in the pipeline being a Cutting Garden. Barnsdale is an organic and peat-free garden for all seasons and one that offers much more than just a very enjoyable visit, hosting a wide range of gardening courses, special events, Summer Sundays, weddings, tea room and plant nursery. Entry to Barnsdale Gardens is free for Garden Organic members upon presentation of a valid membership card. *Free entry may not apply to event days - please check the website for further details.
