Overview
More
A well stocked garden with many architectural features, including a sunken Victorian Fernery (1875) and large stable's ruin all located in the grounds of a baronial style house from 1844. A plant hunter trail, many water features and Britain's oldest exotic fern (more than 1000 years) add interest to this distinctly old fashioned and rather magical experience. Open from 10am to 5pm 1st April to 30th October.

This garden is being reclaimed by the current owners. I was with a group specifically touring gardens on Scotland and this was one of our best. One of the owners spent a generous amount of time with us explaining the history and certain important plants....More

It is indeed a slog at times - and the kind comments we receive do help us carry on. We have no time or money for advertising, so we appreciate all the more anyone making the effort to help spread the word through Trip Advisor.

The stable ruin is a real asset!!! Easy to get to, friendly dog and beautiful pond hidden in the garden!

I visited Ascog with my 11 year old son who has absolutely no interest in victorian gardens. Even he was enchanted by this wonderful place. The gardens themselves consist of a succession of different mini gardens, woodland, meadow, oriental gravel garden, victorian water garden etc...More
