Bowood’s magnificent stately home stands within one of ‘Capability’ Brown’s most beautiful parks, with gently sloping lawns stretching down to the lake and distant views to the chalk downlands.  Delights within the park include the Cascade, Doric Temple, Terrace Gardens and spectacular Rhododendrons Walks which open during the flowering season from April to June. This is a spectacular attraction offering breathtaking vistas of colour and beauty covering over 60 acres.  This woodland oasis of azaleas, magnolias and rhododendrons is considered to be one of the most exciting gardens of its type in the country.

The Bowood Gardens are one of the special glories of Bowood, encompassing almost every period of English garden design from the early Georgian period onwards. Guided tours are available which encompass the flowering terraces, the arboretum and pinetum as well as the walled gardens.
