Port Eliot House and Garden
Springtime at Port Eliot is sensational. Wander amongst thousands and thousands of daffodils, find the ravishing camellia glade, and be stunned by drifts of wild garlic, primroses, hellebores, hyacinths, crocuses and snowdrops.
Others prefer the calm and dappled shade of the woodland garden. Wander amidst the rhododendrons and camellias; get lost in the maze, picnic on the national heritage award winning Best Picnic Spot! Marvel at the landscaping designed by Sir Humphrey Repton in the Grade I Listed garden, as you walk along the hidden gems of the estuary walk and the viaduct.
The house and gardens are extremely ancient as the site was once a monastery; the passage of time can be felt as you walk around the estate. Amongst the camellias and other flowers are old magnificent trees. There is also a beautiful Orangery which dates from the Georgian period with chandeliers romantically entwined with flowers.
House and Gardens closed for 2019
Due to an extensive programme of renovation and restoration the house and gardens will not be open during the 2019 season. Areas of the gardens will still be accessible during public ticketed events and limited access to some areas of the house when appropriate to the event.
