A beautiful timber, brick and stone Grade 1-listed Building, Birtsmorton Court is built on a courtyard plan and is just one of a handful of double-moated sites across the country. Built in the 13th Century, the earliest reference to the Estate is found in the Domesday Book.

Surrounded by extensive formal gardens, we will take a tour of the top lawn and admire the scenic views of the White Garden, the topiary, and the ancient Wolsey tree, where legend has it, Cardinal Wolsey foresaw his own execution.

The White Garden lies in the middle of the yew tree topiary and was created by owner and our guide Mrs. Rosalie Dawes in 1997. It features extensive ironwork arches covered with Iceberg roses, jasmine, white clematis and wisteria. Along with a gazebo, surrounded with a wide variety of white shrubs and perennials.

Just outside the brick walls lies the Potager which comprises four square gardens divided by two wide cross tunnels. The Potager is surrounded by a large variety of espaliered pear and apple trees. It contains a mix of permanent plantings alongside rotated annual vegetable crops.
