Grounds and gardens

The Harold Martin Botanic Garden spans 16 acres of cultivated grounds with origins dating back to 1920. The horticulture, spectacular in itself, is also amazing in its variety, containing the national plant collections of Hardy Fuchsia, Skimmia, Lawson Cypress and Aubrieta. For those unfamiliar with the names, sight alone is enough to convey the special nature of the plants and flowers.

The grounds are perfect for a pleasant walk and there are benches for those who simply wish to relax and admire the surroundings. The idyllic garden setting also plays host to several events throughout the year, including the very popular ‘sculpture in the garden’ event which displays some remarkable sculptures from world renowned artists throughout the summer months.

Beaumont Hall is located at the top end of the botanic garden.
