Explore the beautiful gardens of Mottisfont Abbey

The 19th century garden at Mottisfont Abbey is typical of the period, with sweeping lawns and stands of trees, much in the Capability Brown style. The garden is the result of the work of several well-known garden designers. In 1971 the kitchen garden was developed and holds a collection of roses from rosarian Graham Stuart Thomas, the National Trust´s gardens consultant. Visit in June for the best display. The grounds have a wonderful collection of trees; oaks, chestnuts, beech, hornbeam and more. The huge plane tree, thought to be the largest in the UK covers 1500 square metres.

Mottisfont also has a Historic House:

The Top Twenty Places to see Snowdrops by Natalie French

"Set within glorious grounds in the heart of Hampshire, Mottisfont Abbey sits alongside one of the finest chalk streams in the world, the River Test. Its famous walled garden houses the National Collection of old-fashioned roses, but come February the first of the 60,000 spring bulbs break up through the frozen ground. Guided woodland walks are available, allowing you to enjoy the early snowdrop dappled landscape."

Ten Beautiful Gardens to Visit While it's Still Winter by Veronica Peerless

"Mottisfont is best known for its roses in summer, but it now has an exciting winter garden too. Planted in 2010, it takes its inspiration from the River Test. Its main feature is a ‘river’ of evergreens, punctuated with clipped box plants that are shaped to resemble rocks in the water. There’s a three-dimensional plant sculpture to wander through, and lots of unusual winter plants too."
