Award Winning Gardens in a setting of lakes, canals and parkland.
Chippenham Park is a thriving family estate. The house, gardens and park were created at the very end of the 17th Century by Admiral Lord Russel with permission from William II.
The gardens have been 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.
We are open several times throughout the seasons from the first snowdrops to the last late-autumn colour and for extended periods from Feb-April including a wonderful Easter Egg Hunt for children every year.
Our fully licensed Potting Shed Tearooms are open alongside the Open Garden dates, serving delicious home-made hot food, teas, coffee and cakes.
One of the major highlights of the year at Chippenham Park Gardens is the February Snowdrops as these flowers bloom, creating a delightful natural display that is a sight to behold. Chippenham Park Gardens will be open to the public for the whole of February from the 8th to see the snowdrop gardens. A truly unforgettable experience. With acres of lakes, woodland and walled gardens to see and a cosy Potting Shed Cafe serving hot, homemade food.
Dogs are welcome in the gardens on leads – please remember to clear up after them. We do not allow picnics anywhere on the premises. Wheelchair access is only limited in places although there are wood-chip paths in most places. There is wheelchair access to the outdoor toilet in the kitchen garden but the indoor toilets have a couple of steps. Be aware when visiting, especially with children, that the gardens contain large areas of open water.
