RHS Garden Rosemoor

A National Garden

Rosemoor is now firmly established as a garden of National Importance. Since it was gifted to the Royal Horticultural Society in 1988 by Lady Anne Berry an intensive programme of development has created a 65 acre garden of great variety and interest in the breathtaking setting of the Torridge Valley in North Devon.

The objective has been to delight and inspire gardeners of all backgrounds from novice to professional, and to provide the highest quality of plants and planting suitable for the West Country.

The Society makes every possible effort to explain its work to Rosemoor visitors and to pass on its ideas and experience to all those who love the English garden. This is backed up by the provision of outstanding facilities from the award winning Visitors Centre to a high quality shop and plant centre, restaurant and tea room.

A Garden for all interests

There are few other gardens which can balance to such effect the old and the new, and demonstrate such a wide range of interest throughout the year. The mature planting of Lady Anne's Garden around Rosemoor House, and its adjacent arboretum, is connected to the formal garden created over the last few years by the winding rock gorge planted with ferns and bamboos, with a stream and bog gardens which lead to an enchanting lake. Other features of the Garden include:

  • Complex of 2,000 roses (200 varieties)

  • Colour theme gardens

  • Herb garden and potager

  • Extensive herbaceous borders

  • Cottage garden

  • Foliage and Plantsman's garden

  • Winter garden

  • Fruit and Vegetable garden

  • We stock a superb range of garden plants, many of which are interesting and unusual, some propagated from specimens that may be seen growing at Rosemoor.

  • Free car park

  • Full facilities for the disabled

  • Guide dogs only.
