Isle of Wight
Morton Manor is a manor house originating in the 13th century, based in Brading on the Isle of Wight. While the house itself has a long and varied history, it is the stunning 5 acre gardens surrounding the property that draw the visitors come rain or shine.
Morton Manor Gardens
The manor boasts a huge collection of Japanese Acers along with an Elizabethan sunken garden within handsomely landscaped grounds of mature specimen trees. The landscaped grounds feature Magnolias, Azaleas, Roses, Rhododendrons, and Camellias among many others, and will delight garden enthusiasts worldwide.
All the gardens date from different periods, as new owners have added to what was already there. The terraced gardens, for instance date from the 19th century, and until 2008, these led to a vineyard which produced white wine: however this no longer exists.
These gardens are multi-award winning: having taken first place in the Isle of Wight in Bloom competition six times along with winning the Southern England in Bloom competition twice.
Morton Manor House
The house itself is a Grade II listed building, having been upgraded through the centuries by each it’s new owners. Originally a relatively small house in the 13th century, it is constructed of a variety of materials and now includes a Tudor fireplace, titling of a medieval design and an Arts and Crafts style exterior.
Today, the beautiful gardens and refurbished house play host to a number of weddings, events, conferences and parties. There is a gift shop on site for visitors looking to take a leaf from the manor’s books and start their own award winning garden
