About

Waltham Place Estate has often been described, as, “the best kept secret in Berkshire”, and that should arouse your curiosity to visit this hidden gem.

What you find here is a little oasis which has much to offer the visitor at all levels. There are beautiful gardens to walk around, which explore the boundaries between gardens and nature. After which you can enjoy the delicious homemade cakes in the tea room and browse in the farm shop.

The estate includes a farm, ornamental and kitchen gardens, with a lake and woodlands. It has been managed organically for over 20 years and has matured into a thriving environment.

The gardens are open by guided tour only with a maximum of two gardeners taking visitors around the gardens with no more than eight visitors per gardener group. 

Discover the principles of naturalistic planting used here, for example how the plants are allowed to run their natural cycle and therefore support the wealth of insect and bird life.

With the current interest in food miles, sustainability, and a greener lifestyle, education is an important part of the Waltham offering and there are tours for schools and adult courses on offer too.

The estate holds seasonal walks during the spring and autumn months.
