Set in idyllic surroundings, Kingston Maurward Gardens are Dorset´s best kept secret. A tranquil, and peaceful spot, the gardens are situated in undulating countryside, with a lake, canals, broad sweeping and formal gardens. Kingston Maurward House was built around 1720 for George Pitt, a cousin of Prime Minister Pitt and is an excellent example of a House of this period. The gardens were laid out in the `Jardin Anglais´ style popularised by Capability Brown. The formal gardens consist of a matrix of small gardens each with its own theme and there are also tree trails, lakeside walks and a delightful walled garden.
