Bledlow Manor House has been owned by the Carington family since the 18th Century. The garden came into existence in 1967 as the brainchild of the 6th Lord and Lady Carrington who commissioned the landscape architect, Robert Adams to create the garden. After the 7th Lord Carrington inherited the garden, he commissioned the plantsman and designer (and long-term friend of Rare Plant Fairs!) Sean Walter in 2019 to lead on an extensive replanting and rejuvenation project throughout the gardens.

The present garden covers about 12 acres, and utilises a mixture of different terrain and styles, ranging from a Japanese style water garden on converted old cress beds, a walled kitchen garden, to a sculpture garden with number of contemporary sculptures by, amongst others, Peter Randall Page, Michael Cooper, Alistair Lambert, Barry Mason and Paul Vanstone.


The Manor House Garden has been selected as the Judges’ Choice for the Historic Houses Association Garden of The Year Award 2023.
