The Grounds

Explore our lush sub-tropical gardens. Soak up the sunshine over a chilled glass of something delicious. Take time for tea on the terrace.

Set against a romantic backdrop of Edwardian turrets and our ivy-clad redbrick house, Merchants Manor’s historic gardens are a wonderful place to kindle new love and celebrate new marriage.

An explosion of daffodils, camellias and blossoms, spring comes early to our gardens. The longer, brighter, warmer days are filled with promise, as our green space comes alive and the wedding season begins.

Gulls glide through blue skies. The ocean forms a backdrop for the abundant layers of summer greenery. The scent of lavender clamours for attention against a sea of sweet peas. And yes, the living is easy.

Whatever the season, whatever the occasion, a wander round our award-winning gardens is a sure way to stimulate your senses, with glimpses of the sea on the horizon and a verdant space to take time out.

If you’re seeking a shady place to slip away, come and enjoy the silence in our summer house. Appreciate the peace of this natural hideaway, a stone’s throw from the main house – or invite some friends and book your own private feast in this unforgettable setting.

We also have plentiful private parking for our guests.
