“The grounds of Beeleigh Abbey include three acres of spacious and peaceful gardens in a historic rural setting, beautifully extended and revived in the last few years.
Mature trees surround a variety of planting and water features: woodland walks under-planted with bulbs leading to the tidal River Chelmer, cottage & bog gardens, an extensive formal rose garden filled with over 300 modern English roses, kitchen & soft fruit gardens, orchard, wildflower meadow, wisteria walk, and stunning 85 metre long double mixed borders. Specimen trees include Magnolia, Tulip, and Indian Bean.
The extensive lawn contains the most recent project with the scenic backdrop of the remains of a 12th century abbey incorporated into a mainly 17th century private residence. A new ornamental glasshouse & herb garden was completed in 2019.”
