Designed by the legendary “Capability” Brown, the 42-acre castle gardens at Sherborne are a stunning example of his craft.
This Grade 1 listed garden was one of Capability Brown’s first commissions. Using Sherborne Old Castle as his backdrop, he designed the lake in 1753 and reshaped the Pleasure Gardens in 1776, creating the gently rolling landscape we see today. An RHS partner garden, there is something to see all year round – from the spring bulbs to the autumn colours reflected in the lake. Please note, due to COVID restrictions, the gardens are open but the castle itself is closed. Contactless entry is available and we ask everyone to adhere to social distancing guidelines on site.
