View of the Rock Garden

The Rock Garden took over four years to build and is probably the largest of its kind in Europe, covering some two acres. During the war this fell into neglect but was reclaimed and replanted in the late seventies. It is an ideal setting for Alpine rhododendron species from the higher elevations of the Himalayas. Ground hugging dwarf hybrid rhododendrons, Juniperus scopulorum ‘Sky Rocket’ and other rock plants grow around the large stones.

‘What could be better on a trip down to the New Forest than a walk in a beautiful garden, a ride on a steam train (which my grandson adored!) and a chance to see the Beaulieu river close up? A memorable day out and a gem of a place’
