Leonardslee Lakes & Gardens

Leonardslee Lakes & Gardens

Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens is described as 'The Finest Woodland Gardens in England'. First planted in 1801, the Grade I listed gardens set within the historic 240-acre estate features an outstanding scenery throughout the year.

Set in the heart of the estate lies Leonardslee House. The breath-taking and serene historic 19th-century Italianate style house sits on top of a valley with a panoramic view of the gardens and is home to Michelin-star Restaurant Interlude and Afternoon Tea at Leonardslee House.

Savour culinary delights when choosing the sparkling, savoury, classic afternoon tea or the Estate dining experience from Restaurant Interlude.

In 2018, the first commercial Pinotage vines were planted in the UK at Leonardslee.

While our vines mature, explore the world of wine pairing with our six wine tasting experiences from our sister estate, Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate in South Africa. Their award-winning wines can be sampled throughout the year and offer experiences such as the Ultimate Leonardslee and Sabrage Experience.

Leonardslee Lakes & Gardens is open throughout the year except on Christmas day.

Please visit in-line with current restrictions, and visit their website before visiting to ensure they are open.
