Walled Garden

Walled Garden

The walled garden at Belmont is situated behind the clock tower and can be accessed from the pinetum or the courtyard. Its long borders contain a wide variety of plants both annual and perennial. The combination of these borders with climbers, a more formal rose bed and walls covered with wisteria ensures there is interest throughout the year.

We look forward to welcoming you

Dogs are allowed in the Grounds as long as they are kept on the lead at all times. The Gardens are open all year round from 10am to 6pm (or dusk if earlier).

“Beautiful gardens.

Colourful, peaceful, serene.

The views are stunning.”

The Pinetum

Next to the walled garden, the pinetum contains a variety of trees (Blue Atlas Cedar, Mexican White Pine, Brewer Spruce and Coast Redwood amongst others), planted by successive Harris generations to commemorate various family events. The pinetum is also the site of a charming Victorian Shell Grotto which contains fine examples of fossilised Ammonites.
