The 8-acre gardens at Waterperry date back to the 1930’s when the estate was home to Beatrix Havergal’s famous School of Horticulture for Women.  Waterperry’s reputation for education and horticultural excellence continues to this day.  The teaching gardens have now been transformed into ornamental gardens, including a rose garden, formal knot garden and a canal studded with waterlilies.  One of the few original features is the 60m (200ft) herbaceous border.   Just a stone’s throw from historic Oxford, Waterperry Gardens offer a sense of wellbeing, plants in beautiful settings, special garden spaces and gardening inspiration in a tranquil, rural setting.
