Overview

Experience a sense of tranquillity at our impressive Grade II* listed gardens, which have been shaped and inspired by the remarkable custodians of this special place for over 1,000 years. On your visit to the 26 acres of tended grounds, you’ll find a range of stunning features with beautiful vistas and creative sculptures, including ancient trees and impressive plant species.

Our gardens team have been working hard to bring some of the hidden secrets of the gardens to life. On arrival, you’ll pick up a beautifully design gardens guide (included in the ticket price), and there’s also an activity trail for children to engage in with hidden paths to explore. Stay awhile and enjoy delicious food from The White Hart Restaurant or The Green Table café.

Great for kids; Families can enjoy our all-new children’s nature trail within the gardens, with inspired nature activities including bug hotels, den building and more.

Our gorgeous new trail map included in your ticket price – make sure you pick one upon arrival!  Open Year round 9am – 5pm.

Sandridge Barton Wines

Sandridge Barton is the home of Sharpham Wine and sits in a south-facing bowl on the edge of the River Dart, the perfect terroir for growing grapes and producing renowned English wines. You can visit their on-site farm shop, book onto a guided or self-guided wine and cheese tasting or tour or dine at their onsite restaurant. Sandridge Barton Wines may appear to be a new face on the rapidly expanding UK wine scene, but the Devon based vineyard and winery has four decades of history and winemaking knowledge and experience. The name Sandridge Barton marks a new era for the celebrated Dart Valley winery, Sharpham Wine, which has literally moved lock, stock, and barrel (in fact, quite a few barrels) across the river Dart to the new state of the art winery, visitor centre café, nestled in a small valley adjacent to the 32acre Sandridge Barton vineyard which has been producing grapes for Sharpham Wine for over a decade.
