Marwood Hill Gardens

Gardens, trees, lakes, tearoom, statues,

Further improvements

1972 saw the arrival of Malcolm Pharoah, from RHS Wisley and the building of the present house in 1973. These events coincided with Dr Smarts retirement from medicine which saw progress, gain momentum.

As the commercial side of Marwood increased, more improvements were added. A further twelve acres was purchased down the valley, from the middle lake, which has been gradually incorporated into the garden. A scented arbour and folly have been added and the slopes, planted with trees, making this enchanted garden a total of 20 acres.

This is a garden, suited to all members of the family, from the young, to the more mature. Whether you are a serious gardener or a horticultural specialist -Marwood was awarded the “Gardens of Merit” award by https://internationalcamellia.org for its collection in 2004 – an artist, photographer, bog garden enthusiast or a child these, gardens have something for everyone. What could be better than showing your children the beauty and value of nature, from the flowers and trees, to the water fowl, frogs and fish, which all lurk within their secret hideaways in these fantastic gardens. Marwood also run special trails for children and school groups as well as Well being and Mindfulness groups for adults.
