Forde Abbey - Gardens Dorset
Forde Abbey in Dorset is a treasure in an area already known for its outstanding beauty. It is also a family home, and a living and breathing working estate. The house is surrounded by 30 acres of spectacular award-winning gardens. The landscape has developed slowly since monastic times. The monks certainly grew vegetables in large quantities, but whatever gardens they had have disappeared over the centuries.
