The two acre 19th century walled garden offers a space ‘to relax or play’. Outside the garden, the Courtyard Community is a collection of small businesses offering a range of opportunities from shopping to landscape design. Also a garden shop, treatment rooms and the Hothouse café.
18th Century Walled Garden, rhomboidal in shape and 1.5 acres in area. Restoration over the last 5 years has involved the building of a three-quarter span (Alitex) Glasshouse, planting of soft fruit and top fruit (including many old apple varieties), keeping chickens, developing a cut flower border and a continuing project working with the horticultural Thrive growing vegetables for the Brewhouse. Tearoom.
As this kitchen garden is adjacent to Cowdray’s ruined medieval mansion, it doubles as a reconstructed Tudor garden and a show place for the rusted iron artefacts, arbours, trellises and plant supports made by the local company ‘Room in the Garden’.
Described as ‘an exciting contemporary garden’, the 41⁄2 acre walled garden has been recently landscaped and planted (2004) to a modern design by Piet Oudolf. Interesting to visit for it is an elegant, though non- productive, alternative use for an old kitchen garden.
Kitchen garden built in 1820, with unusual sloping raised beds. It has undergone extensive renovation and is now back in full production. Split into five sections, each has a different them and character: fruit, vegetables, ornamental planting, pumpkin patch and community garden.
