Spetchley Gardens are amongst the finest in the country. Set in lovely countryside 3 miles east of Worcester on the A44, extending over 30 acres and include many rare trees, shrubs and plants of interest both to the professional and amateur gardener.
This lovely garden is owned by Mr & Mrs John Berkeley whose other home is Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire. The Berkeley family has owned Spetchley since 1606, but the greatest extension to the garden took place when Mr Berkeley's grandmother, Rose Berkeley, assisted by her sister, that great Edwardian gardener Miss Ellen Wilmot, of Warley Place in Essex, enlarged and enhanced the garden.
You will find most aspects of gardening in a garden full of secrets, every corner reveals something new. There is a vast collection of plants, many rarely found outside the major botanical gardens, "Truly a Plantsman's Paradise".
The Park, containing fine herds of red and fallow deer has changed little since the 17th Century making a delightful walk for the more energetic visitor. Refreshments are available from the tea-rooms. The House is not open to visitors. Dogs are not admitted beyond the car park. There is limited access for wheelchairs
