An opportunity to view the stunning and normally private gardens of Alscot Park followed by lunch at The Bell, Alderminster!
Booking in advance is essential.
Enjoy browsing the beautiful and historic gardens of Alscot Park, and take in the stunning views of the wonderfully preserved rococo gothic style house, part of the West family since 1747. See the beautiful surrounding parkland that is home to highland cattle, fallow deer and abundant wildlife. The river Stour flows directly past the Grade I listed house and the upper and lower ponds are home to a variety of species including carp. There are some magnificent old trees (approx. 450 years old) within the grounds, in particular cedar, venerable tulip and s...weet chestnut. The various garden beds including the fragrant lavender garden are a riot of colour in the summer, and the kitchen garden is host to some delicious produce. Amongst the herbaceous borders you will find some wonderful sculptures on the approach to the orangery, pool and aviary areas, where delicious teas are served. Throughout the visit guests will have the opportunity to talk to members of the team about the house and gardens, and some of these amazing points of interest
Following your morning at Alscot you will make your way to Alderminster where you will be greeted for lunch at The Bell; a popular award winning country pub and restaurant owned and run by the Estate and steeped in history, yet beautifully modernised, where you will enjoy a 2 course lunch. The Bell, awarded an AA Rosette for culinary excellence, boasts character and charm along with excellent service and delicious food. With beautiful landscaped gardens that look out over the Stour valley and rolling countryside there is no shortage of space to sit, relax and enjoy.
