Compared to many of the top Devon gardens Marwood is a relative newcomer. The gardens were begun in 1950, at which time they consisted of little more than a simple walled garden.

At Marwood Hill there are over eighteen acres of landscaped gardens with a large collection of trees, shrubs, herbaceous and alpine plants. The gardens were started in the 1950s by the present owner, Dr Smart. At that time they consisted of a neglected walled garden and its immediate surround. Over the years many new areas have been planted and new features added such as the Folly and the Scented Arbour.

The garden is famous for its collection of Camellias, the largest in the country. A large greenhouse is planted with over one hundred big plants which in March and April are covered with flower. Three national plant collections are located within the gardens. The Astilbe collection is one of the biggest in the world.

You will find current events and opening details on their web site but they are open on a daily basis from 9.30 5.30 apart from Christmas Day.
