Dorothy Clive Garden
The garden’s initial creation lay in Colonel Harry Clive’s wartime decision of 1940, to provide ailing wife – Dorothy – with a ‘series of interesting walks’ as she battled with Parkinson’s disease. In 1958 the Dorothy Clive Garden was entrusted by Colonel Clive, to an independent charity – The Willoughbridge Garden Trust. This charity manages, what is now an enhanced 12acre garden.
Explore this charming English country garden. Enjoy great plants throughout the seasons, delightful views and tasty homemade food which is made in our Tearoom with locally sourced produce. The Tearoom makes a variety of delicious freshly baked scones and cakes a long side a varied lunch menu catering for all dietary requirements.
In September the Garden hosts a Chilli, Cheese and Chocolate Festival with local food producers selling their produce with a whole lot of fiery fun on the side.
