The Old Rectory Gardens, Sudborough

Glorious Gardens & Potting Shed Tearoom

This privately owned, quintessentially English country garden of 3 acres is set within a very pretty Northamptonshire village location, and has a magical and welcoming feel.

The gardens have been developed over fifty years and include deep colourful borders, ornamental and specimen trees, over 40 varieties of old roses and a Potager, containing fruit, flowers and vegetables, designed by Rosemary Verey.

The present owners have carried on developing the gardens adding new features such as The Twisted Hazel and Slate gardens. Whilst ensuring they maintain the timeless and tranquil feel The Old Rectory Gardens have always been known for.

This is a place for all seasons, early Spring bulbs, stunning tree peonies, voluptuous roses and warm Autumn colours.

There is a charming tearoom serving home-made cakes and refreshments and a small unique shop selling locally sourced artisan products, when the garden is open.
