Kelmarsh Hall & Gardens


The gardens as seen today at Kelmarsh Hall are mainly the inspiration of Nancy Lancaster, who once lived here, and her garden designer Norah Lindsay. The gardens are now listed by English Heritage as Grade II - 'a garden of national significance'. There is a sunken garden, a long border, a triangular walled garden, a restored vinery and a formal terrace designed by landscape architect Geoffrey Jellicoe that wraps around the Hall. Visit in April and May for the daffodils, snake's head fritillaries, tulips and alliums; in May and June for the peonies and roses; in July for cottage garden perennials and sweet peas; and in August and September to admire the long border at its best. Each September a dahlia festival is held, and in recent years many American varieties have been introduced to acknowledge Nancy Lancaster's heritage.
