About Iford Manor Gardens

Iford Manor was at one time the home of Harold Peto, and the Gardens here are filled with beautiful statues, terraces and columns, with the magnificent planting showing everything off splendidly. These spectacular Italianate gardens are a real retreat, and a visit is always remembered fondly.

Where is Iford Manor Gardens located?

Sitting in a peaceful valley, and alongside the River Frome, The Peto Garden is often visited by bike or by foot, along the many local footpaths from the surrounding villages. By car, it is a 15 minute drive from Bath or a 10 minute drive from Bradford on Avon.

What style of garden is Iford Manor Gardens?

The garden designer, Harold Peto, lived at Iford Manor from 1899 to 1933, and he created the stunning Grade I listed gardens that are still pleasing visitors today. This steep garden covers 2.5 acres, and enjoys delightful views over the Frome valley, particularly from the cloisters, loggia and the casita. The gardens are filled with statues, urns and sarcophagi, collected by Peto. With charming architecture and confident planting, the gardens include both formal and informal areas, herbaceous borders and woodland. The Japanese garden was added by the current owners of Iford Manor, the Cartwright-Hignett family.

What can guests enjoy at Iford Manor Gardens?

Peto is a unique and charming garden that refreshes and inspires. The timeless beauty of the place and its exceptional architecture whisk visitors away to a place of peace and tranquility. Refreshments are always available.

Other information

Please be aware that the garden is set into a steep hillside with narrow paths, and there are no handrails on the steps.
