Exquisitely sited by Capability Brown to take advantage of the breathtaking views across the Solent towards the Isle of Wight, Cadland House's gardens are his smallest surviving pleasure ground. It is a miniature landscape garden with a circular belt walk, broad vistas, intimate peeps out to sea, the delights of scent and foliage and the play of light and shade on the grass. Plants available prior to 1760, roses, myrtles and cistus, scent the air. 18th century gardens were designed to create a different sensation at each turn of the path and to enliven the spirit with the Beauty of Nature.
Cadland Gardens are open by private appointment only, and on a few select event dates. We ask that you do not take photographs during your visit.
Home fruits such as apricots, white peaches and grapes are carefully tended to throughout the seasons...
Enlivening the first Victorian walled garden is the longest surviving fruit house in Hampshire, a small vegetable garden area, a fountain and a parterre laid out on gravel with low growing shrubs from different corners of the world, together with an unusual aviary with ornamental pheasants as an eye catcher at the end of the orchard; the second walled garden has rare and interesting trees and shrubs.
Outside the walled gardens lawns with Cedars of Lebanon and a collection of oaks can be seen from the woodland paths.
