Overview

A romantic house and gallery set in beautiful riverside gardens. Ancient trees, bubbling brooks and rolling lawns frame this lovely old house. Crafted from a medieval priory, it is full of surprises, with art that intrigues and delights. Come back throughout the year to see different exhibitions in the gallery. Carpets of spring bulbs, a stunning walled rose garden, rich autumn leaves and a colourful winter garden make Mottisfont a feast for the senses all year round. There's space to run, jump and play, and always something for families to do.

Stunning day, beautiful weather and stunningly beautiful roses! The garden is well laid out and the cafes are both really well run and stocked. We didn't look around the house because the weather was too good.

Grounds are great for a picnic - plenty of tables- parking straightforward. Facilities are very modern and fresh. The house itself is quite modern in terms of decor but good for 30 minutes. The grounds are good for waking around with pretty good walled garden,...More

Had a wonderful day here. There’s great history in the house. A lovely walk a long the river test. Wet play area and muddy climbing bog for the kids. Plenty of scenic areas to sit and have a picnic. And the flower gardens are stunning.
