Welcome to Munstead Wood

Munstead Wood, the home of Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932), is in private ownership, however the garden is open by arrangement, Monday to Friday from 9.30 to 3.00 pm. (excluding Bank holidays).

Both house and garden are Grade I listed. The house, which is not open to the public, was designed by a young Edwin Lutyens and constructed from bargate stone and other local materials. Miss Jekyll incorporated many of her own ideas into the design, all of which add to its charm. It was completed in 1896.

The garden was created on heath land, some thirteen years before the house was built, during which time Miss Jekyll lived next door in The Hut.

The Nut Walk, which is under-planted with hellebores, comes into flower in early spring. This is followed by the Primrose Garden (March), the Spring Garden (April), the Azaleas and Rhododendrons in the woodland (May), the Three Corner Garden (June) and the Main Border (July - November).

There is no access for coaches but parking is available.

We regret that no dogs are allowed in the garden with the exception of Guide Dogs

Garden tour £7 per person
