Spetchley is a garden for all tastes and ages containing one of the biggest private collections of plant varieties outside the major botanical gardens. The Gardens are not a formal paradise of neatly manicured lawns or beds but rather a wondrous display of plants, shrubs and trees woven into a garden of many rooms and vistas.

The exuberant planning, the peaceful walks, make this an oasis of enjoyment and quiet. April and May produce a wonderful display of spring bulbs, especially daffodils, as well as flowering trees and shrubs. The large collection of roses, both old-fashioned and modern, come into their own in June and July, whilst July, August and September reveal the great herbaceous borders in all their glory. Late September sees the start of the Autumn tints. This is indeed a garden for all seasons, and has been described as one of horticulture's best-kept secrets.

Close by is the Deer Park with its fine herds of red and fallow deer. This has changed little since the 17th Century and makes a delightful walk.

The Gardens are open in 2017 from April to 30 September from Wednesdays to Sunday (and on Bank Holiday Mondays) and also on Saturdays and Sundays in October. For further information telephone 01905 345106 or visit

Coach parties are welcome and guided tours are available, both by prior arrangement. Unfortunately, because of the nature of the environment, wheelchair access is limited. Please note that the house is not open to the public.

The Spetchley Specialist Plant Fair will be held on 23 April 2017. Gates open from 11am-5pm and entry is £5 for adults, under 16's free of charge. It is the perfect place to find something for you garden. 12 & 13 August 2017 will be a weekend of Military Re-enactment spread over 5 periods of history. Come and see how our ancestors used to live, eat and fight from the Middle Ages through to World War 2. Entry will be £8.00 for adults, £3.00 for children 5-16 years, under 5's free of charge, a family ticket (2 adults & 2 children) is available for £20.00.
