Winsford Walled Gardens are crammed full with summer colour and variety. 'INSPIRATIONAL' is the word that keeps appearing in visitor comments. Winsford is home to the most innovative and ornate Victorian greenhouses anywhere in the SOUTH WEST of ENGLAND - and we're proud to encourage all visitors to wander inside these amazing teak structures. Long before you reach the greenhouses you will be enthralled by the garden borders, the bamboo grove, massive gunnera manicata (giant Brazilian rhubarb) and the many features of the gardens. These glorious summer gardens are full of variety and colour and leave all visitors inspired and full of ideas.
Winsford Walled Gardens are now under new ownership (although this website remains under Head Gardener Mike's control).

Winsford Walled Garden was a forgotten ruin until its rediscovery in 1999. The original English walled garden with its 12ft high walls was, and always has been, a summer flower garden since it was built around 1880. Today, the harmonious summer garden design flows well beyond the original 12 foot high Victorian walls in a blaze of colour and interest that will surely surprise and delight.
We're located at Halwill Junction on the A3079 - just 10 miles NW of Okehampton and the A30 - the main road artery running right through the South West region.
