Award Winning Gardens at Chippenham Park

Chippenham Park is a thriving family estate. The gardens were awarded the highest two-star rating by the Good Gardens Guide and are notable for their vast swathes of snowdrops and aconites in late winter, followed by a superb spring show of daffodils, hellebores, spring bulbs and blossoms. 

There are a few set Open Dates throughout the year when the gardens are open to the public, but we offer exclusive openings to groups where you can have a private guided tour by our head gardener followed by lunch in our stunning tearoom and then have the chance to explore these extensive grounds on your own.
