Brighten Your Day with Colourful Flowers in Historic Estates

The climate of Southern England provides the ideal home for some of the most beautiful gardens in the entirety of England. Renting a caravan in the Southeast means plenty of opportunity to explore these gardens, with their lush landscapes and colourful flowers, which can give a fantastic boost to your mental well-being.

Impressive gardens sought throughout the region feature attractions from the formal ornate flower beds to knot gardens to those which carry rare or unique plants. Many gardens are on the grounds of castles and other historic estates which are kept meticulously cultivated by groundskeepers and plantsmen.

Wander at your leisure for hours alongside the world’s finest plants and flowers before having a picnic or stopping into one of the many on-site shops. Many gardens have cafes and tearooms which provide light fare, pastries, cakes, and beverages. Often you are free to bring your four-legged friend along for the walk but be careful they don’t eat any strange plants!
