The world renowned water gardens and nursery at Longstock are also available for you to visit while staying on the Estate. The Longstock Park Water Gardens covers around seven acres and was originally created by the Beddington family during the early 1900's. The water gardens became part of the estate in 1942 and since then the gardens have been nurtured and developed to become the finest, famous water gardens. John Spedan Lewis spent much of his later life in these gardens and whilst the gardens remain true to this time, our philosophy is to evolve the landscape so that it remains a vibrant, tranquil and beautiful place to visit. Please ask at Reception for a key to visit this hidden gem.
