Spetchley Park Gardens

Spetchley Park, Worcester, Worcestershire, WR5 1RS

Spetchley is a garden for all tastes, this lovely 30 acre Victorian paradise boasts an enviable collection of plant treasures from every corner of the globe including one of the finest and biggest private collections of peonies. It is a garden of contrasts, where formal clipped hedges, rose beds and sweeping lawns meet tumbling herbaceous borders and walls festooned with rampant climbers, and where winding paths lead you from the quintessentially English to the unmistakably Mediterranean.

Spetchley has been home to the Berkeley family for over 400 years, in addition to the beautiful Gardens, you can enjoy the fantastic vistas and stunning architecture that not only inspired Edward Elgar to write one of his great compositions from Gardener’s Cottage but was also home to convalescing American pilots during World War 2.

April and May produce a breathtaking display of spring bulbs including , daffodils and other bulbs, flowering trees and shrubs. There is a wonderful display of peonies and roses in June and July, whilst in July, August and September great herbaceous borders can be seen.

Having explored the Gardens you can enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the Old Laundry Tea room or, for the more adventurous walk around the 150 acre deer park with its herd of red and fallow deer. At the end of your visit the Plant Sales and Gift Shop are packed full of tempting delights to remind yourself of your visit.

Review of Spetchley Park Gardens

Posted on by Zoe CCustomer visited Jul 2017

We found Spetchley Park Gardens when looking for somewhere fairly local to Gloucestershire for a picnic. We loved the look of Spetchley on the website and took our picnic lunch there. It was the perfect place to sit and enjoy a birthday lunch. We were four adults and an 18 month old in a pram. It was a beautiful day and we sat by the water watching swans and ducks with their young. The £7 entrance fee was definitely worth it.
The gardens were a beautiful variety of flowers, plants and trees. It had a natural charm to it that wasn't too manicured. We would definitely return, mainly to try out the tearooms next time. :)


Review of Spetchley Park Gardens

We were very pleased to have gone. The weather was beautiful, so even in the afternoon, it was lovely to walk in the garden. There are some magnificent trees that frame the house beautifully. There are both formal and informal beds, woodland, herbaceous and exotic areas. Lovely vistas over the lake and into the distance over the deer park. At this early point in the season some of the magnolias and rhododendrons were out, the bluebells and aconites were eye catching, but the spring bulbs were going over. There are well placed statues to draw the eye along paths. It is easy to see/imagine how fabulous the peonies will be in a few weeks and how the garden will change over the seasons. Loved the horse pool....yep a pool for cleaning horses! We were also lucky to meet and have a brief chat with Miss Berkeley, who came to feed the nursing swans and ducks and is very informative and interesting, including suggesting other places worth a visit.

Garden is well cared for by staff and volunteers and there's lots of different planting for the seasons. Parkland and deer too.

Plenty of parking. Reasonable entrance fees.

We enjoyed our lunch in the tea rooms and there was a lovely array of cakes (which we too full up to try.)

Visited last month on a cream tea deal and was owed by the beautiful grounds and scenery. Our Cream tea was really nice but the highlight of the day was our tour tour of the house which was fascinating and great fun too!

I would really recommend a visit to this little treasure.
