Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens is described as ‘The Finest Woodland Gardens in England’.
First planted in 1801, the Grade I Listed gardens on the 240 acre estate feature an outstanding scenery throughout the year and particularly majestic as it blooms in spring or takes on the glorious colours of autumn.
For a perfect day out, you can also visit the renowned Rock Garden and Dolls House Museum, see the rare colony of wallabies and catch sight of the deer roaming free; and then enjoy dining in style or taking high tea in the Grade II Listed Mansion, or enjoy more informal refreshments at other locations on the estate.
First opened by the Sir Edmund Loder to the public in 1907, and still run and managed by the same family. A garden the size of Leonardslee is a story of evolution. The backbone of the garden was created in the first years of the 19th century, but the four generations of the Loder family since 1889 have continued the design and expansion of the valley plantings to form the spectacular beauty that is seen today.
