Barnsdale Gardens is a joy to visit; 38 themed gardens, ponds and woodlands nestled in a quiet corner of the beautiful Rutland countryside, but just 10 minutes from Stamford and the A1.

Made famous by Geoff Hamilton and the BBC's Gardeners' World, it is Britain's largest collection of individually designed gardens, and whether your interests include gardening, photography or simply a stroll in the sunshine with a great little tea room at the end of it, there is something for everyone.

The enormous variety of planting styles at Barnsdale has been likened to a 'theme park for gardeners' and many visitors will recognise the old TV favourites alongside new developments such as a Children's Garden (new for 2011), a large nursery specialising in quality, unusual plants and a gift shop stuffed with exclusive Barnsdale goodies.

A year-round menu of courses and events aims to inspire all gardeners whether they are complete novices or long-term enthusiasts and everyone can expect some fun at one of the many FREE weekend activity days.

Families can enjoy bird watching using the woodland nest box cameras or follow themed garden trails and arts enthusiasts are well catered for with music events, art exhibitions and painting and photography classes- visit the Barnsdale Gardens website for up-to-the-minute details and booking!
