A 400-year-old, 12-acre garden set in the heart of Lincolnshire.

Easton Hall, the original house, was demolished in 1951 and the garden was abandoned and fell into total disrepair. Since 2001, Ursula and Fred Cholmeley have restored this ancient garden from an overgrown wilderness to the nationally important garden it once was. The restoration continues year on year with innovative new planting schemes blending into a timeless English landscape. It currently includes herbaceous borders, roses, sweet peas, spring bulbs and shrubs, cutflower and vegetable gardens set off by limestone buildings and surrounded by beautiful parkland. Highlights include snowdrops, sweet peas, roses and meadows.

The Courtyard Shop is filled with beautiful and useful gifts, plants, garden accouterments and seeds harvested at Easton Walled Gardens, including over 50 varieties of tried and tested sweet pea varieties. The Applestore Tearoom offers warming drinks a delicious homemade cake and savoury snacks.
