Set in the beautiful landscape of the Cranborne Chase, these 11-acre pleasure grounds were designed in 1880 by General Augustus Pitt Rivers.
They contain an extraordinary collection of buildings, including a Roman temple, open-air theatre and Nepalese rooms. The beautifully laid out garden, with its stunning views, majestic trees and sunken dell ponds retains an atmosphere of elegance and informality. The gardens and Coffee Grove Café are open March to October, Sunday to Thursday 11am to 4.30pm, serving delicious coffee, lunch and tea.
