How Caple Court Gardens

How Caple

The 11 acre gardens of How Caple Court date from Edwardian times and are set high above the River Wye with views towards the Forest of Dean and the Welsh Mountains.

Formal terraces with yew hedges, pools, statues and a traditional rose garden contrast with less formal plantings of mature trees and shrubs.

The medieval church which is still in use contains beautiful stained glass windows, a Norman font and a sixteenth century diptych. The manor house is not open to the public.

After experiencing the romantic atmosphere of the garden, visitors can enjoy a pot of tea, scones and cake in the courtyard tearoom. Ice creams and a selection of confectionery are also available. The river is close by and there is easy access to the Wye Valley Footpath. Walkers and Cyclists are most welcome to stop for refreshments.
