Gardens in Lincolnshire


Gardens in Lincolnshire, such as Easton Walled Gardens,  Belton House and Doddington Hall & Gardens are listed below.

Belton, Lincolnshire Garndes

Belton´s Park and Garden are, like the house, composed with perfect harmony and proportion. They have serenity, order and strong architectural conviction, with both formal Italian and Dutch gardens as well as a vast informal area, the gardens offer variety and choice for every taste.

 The 1870s Dutch garden is one of green and golden yew, formal beds edged with lavender and generously filled urns, whilst the earlier sunken Italian garden is more reliant on architectural features to make its statement. Features such as a large central pond complete with fountain, a lion-headed exedra, with the highlight being a restored and replanted orangery.

Doddington Hall & Gardens is a beautiful family-owned Elizabethan mansion, with original walled courtyards and 5 acres of romantic formal and wild gardens. The West Garden includes a box-edged parterre, planted with a superb display of Flag Iris, roses and fabulous herbaceous borders around the mellow brick walls. The Wild Garden contains a turf maze, a temple of the winds, magnificent trees, rare rhododendrons and winter flowering shrubs. All this provides a backdrop for the pageant of thousands of spring bulbs, which commences in February

Doddington Hall In Lincolnshire

Easton Walled Gardens was described by President Franklin Roosevelt as a `Dream of Nirvana...almost too good to be true´. 50 years later, the house was pulled down and the gardens abandoned. 100 years later see the ongoing revival of these magnificent gardens. Funded privately (with the support of visitors) this garden experience is like no other. Alongside the recovery of these 400 year old gardens are; fantastic snowdrops, David Austin Roses, Daffodil and Iris Collections, a cut flower garden, cottage garden and 80m of poppies. Teas and light lunches are served overlooking the garden.

Grimsthorpe Castle is a formal Grade I listed historic flower and topiary garden. Leading imperceptibly into the woodland garden, providing a fine setting for the ornamental vegetable garden and orchard, with lots of quiet corners and tranquil walkways. Originally created in the 1960s by the Countess of Ancaster and John Fowler. Intricate parterres marked with box hedges lie close to the Castle, a dramatic herbaceous border frames views across the lake
