Larmer Tree - The Jewel of the Cranborne Chase

View the days out leaflet for Larmer Tree - The Jewel of the Cranborne Chase

Set in the outstanding landscape of the Cranborne Chase, these beautifully laid out gardens were created by General Pitt Rivers in 1880. Originally designed as pleasure grounds for "public enlightenment and entertainment", the Larmer Tree is an extraordinary example of Victorian extravagance. Recognised by English Heritage as a Garden of National Importance they were the first privately owned gardens to be opened for public enjoyment.

From the magnificent main lawn radiate wide laurel-hedged rides which take you to the tranquil woodland beyond. In spring a wonderful display of Camellias, Rhododendrons and woodland planting is there to be enjoyed. In high summer the hydrangea collection makes a striking display of colour, and towering over the ponds the exceptionally fine Eucryphias make a magnificent sight. The trees and shrubs of the garden, and its woodland beyond, produce a rich tapestry of colour for our autumn visitors. The Larmer Tree contains a wonderful collection of ornate buildings, peacocks and free-flying Macaws, retained in an enchanting and tranquil atmosphere.
