Overview

A stunning ten acre garden restored by Australian garden designer Marylyn Abbott over the last twenty years. Combining a classical Lakefield design with a blend of formal and informal planting, English traditions and Australian flair, West Green offers intimacy and spectacle in a country setting. Access to the beautiful Victorian greenhouses is included and a visit to the formally planted vegetable garden is a must! West Green also offers a Tea Room and shop, is entirely accessible for those with limited mobility and each year hosts the West Green House Season of Music and Opera in July, Please note that West Green House is privately owned and not open to the general public.

You can only go around the gardens which are very pleasant but nothing more. Being a National Trust member I did not have to pay an entry fee, but non members where charged £8 which I thought was far too much.More

As we'd recently moved to the local area we thought we would find this garden to visit, we didn't know it was a National Trust property until we looked it up on the app. A nice large garden with varying different types of smaller gardens...More

Yet again the National Trust comes up trumps with another superb garden. Located just outside the delightful Hampshire village of Hartley Witney is West Green House and gardens. Unfortunately the house is not open to the public, but the gardens and lake are quite spectacular...More

Have been meaning to do these gardens for a while as quite local. The gardens were relatively easy to find as they are signed from the A30. Can get in free as a national trust member which is good. Spend a good hour walking around...More
