The gardens at Wyken nestle around the old manor house, and rest peacefully between the house and the wider landscape. The herb and knot gardens lead into the old-fashioned rose garden, flanked by a pergola and old flint walls.  Wildflower meadows, a beech maze and gazebo stretch beyond. A traditional orchard and kitchen garden supply the restaurant. Created over the past forty years, by Kenneth and Carla Carlisle, Wyken is now a Royal Horticultural Society partner garden and has shrubs and plants of interest throughout the year.’

Alas, no dogs allowed in our Gardens but we have a great ‘Woodland Walk’ (Open April to September) that leads to our Vineyard. This can be accessed free of charge through our Sheep field, following the track to our glorious vineyard and takes about 20 to 30 minutes to walk. We politely ask that all dogs remain on leads for this walk and around the vineyards.

Our Gardens are open April through to September

"The garden at Wyken is ingeniously designed: a series of old-style gardens to complement the Elizabethan house. Stylish and well maintained, this is one of the best modern private gardens in the country."

Season Highlights

A garden full of year round interest

From spring, drifts of narcissi and fritillaria fill the meadows and bulbs, stems and hellebores add colour in the winter garden. Tulips then follow in pots and borders along with blossom in the orchard. From mid June the rose garden reaches it peak of blooms and perfume along with many companion plants including delphiniums and geraniums. The east terrace holds interest throughout the year with the herb and knot gardens and borders. From July onwards the Red Hot borders start to put on a dazzling mix of colours with dahlias,heleniums, tithonia and zinnias lasting into autumn.
