The gardens at Pickwell Manor are truly magical. In front of the south-facing house, the sun terrace leads down to the Italian Garden, surrounded by many mature shrubs, flowers, and rose arches which have been well tended over the years.
This garden offers amazing countryside views and you can see the sea to the west, less than half a mile away with Baggy Point, Hartland Point, and Lundy Island beyond. The tennis court is next to the Italian Garden, offering all this as a backdrop to your backhand!
To the rear of the house, stone steps lead up to a private walled garden with a large grassed area and orchard. To the east and west of the house are woodland areas with gently meandering paths – great for children to explore and play.
Located in the far south-east corner of the garden, there is a magnificent spot with a decked area ideal for barbecuing in the evening and enjoying the views. The gardens are quiet enough to hear all the sounds of the Pickwell Manor birds and wildlife.
You can find plenty of benches around the gardens, offering the ideal place to stop and take in the beauty of the location, the house, gardens and surrounding views. The gardens are one of the most special things about Pickwell Manor.
