Home to the Cartwright-Hignett family since 1965, Iford Manor sits in the middle of a 900-acre mixed estate within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The award-winning, peaceful, Grade 1 registered Iford Manor Gardens are unique with their romantic design and architecture, combining formality with nature, along with magnificent rural views across an unspoilt valley and architectural gems throughout the garden.

A new, stylish restaurant and café opening in 2021 will offer lunches, fabulous cakes, loose leaf teas and some of the finest scones and jam you'll ever taste.

Since 1910 groups have been welcomed to Iford Manor Gardens. The gardens were recognised as a ‘Little Treasure of Britain’ in the 2017 Group Travel Awards.
