1. Unleash your wild side with nomadic

Renowned for their immersive dining experiences, Nomadic will be joining us over August to lead some unforgettable foraging tours paired with interactive fireside cooking and feasting in our woodland. If you’re a foodie, lover of nature and the great outdoors, this is one experience you won’t want to miss!

2. Discover our wild meadow

Asher’s Woodland Trails have come alive with pretty wild flowers that were sown in April by our gardeners. Take a wander through the magnificent woodland – bird song will follow you as you explore the winding paths – and stop for a photo opportunity at the wildflower meadow. The wild meadow has been created not only to provide a gram-worthy shot for our guests, but also to increase biodiversity by attracting butterflies, insects and birds – if you look closely, you may even spot one of our endangered mason bees.

3. Choose your favourite piece of alfresco art

Part of the beauty of our blooming Formal Gardens are the sculptures that sit amongst the spectacular views. Take a leisurely stroll and see which you find most inspiring, or admire the view from The Glasshouse terrace, tipple in hand.

4. Indulge in a lunchtime barbecue

Balmy summer days spent lounging in the sun aren’t complete without a delicious barbecue. Hotel residents and Walled Garden members – you can expect all of your flame-grilled faves at The Grove Grill, which will be available for lunch seven days a week from 22 July.

5. Explore Jemima’s Kitchen Garden

Home to our chef’s freshest ingredients, Jemima’s Kitchen Garden is flourishing this year. Our fantastic team of gardeners have welcomed an array of seasonal fruit and vegetables ready for our estate-to-plate menus. If you do see any of our friendly gardeners around, make sure to stop and chat as they’re a fountain of knowledge!

6. Discover the Tiger Woods plaques on the golf course

If you’re playing a round of golf, on the 9th fairway you’ll find 3 plaques each marking where Tiger Woods hit his approach shot during the 2006 WGC Amex Championship. It was on this hole that Tiger Woods famously hit an eagle 3 days in a row!

7. Uncover the Library

Re-designed in 2021 by award-winning interiors studio, Martin Hulbert Design, the Library is tucked away in the heart of the Mansion overlooking the Formal Gardens. Come rain or shine, it is the perfect place to curl up with a good book or board game.

8. Find the hidden cocktail bar

Enjoy a cocktail from our cocktail bar, hidden in the Lounges. We recommend the Jungle Bird. It’s light and refreshing with its mix of Campari and pineapple – essentially summer in a glass!

9. Take in a film at Everyman Secret Garden

Movie nights under the stars are back on the agenda this summer. From 15 July, hotel residents will be able to enjoy Hollywood’s latest releases, family favourites and musical classics at the popular open-air cinema – all complimentary of course. If you’re not staying with us, opt for a Dinner & Cinema package to enjoy this limited-time experience.

10. Enjoy a taste of Sardinia

Our pop-up Italian restaurant, Verde Kitchen, will be back from 14 July, promising diners a mouth-watering menu inspired by chef Andrea Santu’s home in Sassari, whilst using fresh ingredients from Jemima’s Kitchen Garden. The Culurgiones has our vote!

11. Take a step back in time

Find yourself steeped in history as you step into our Mansion. Former home of the Earls of Clarendon and previous party house to Queen Victoria, sit back and take in the view that so many have celebrated before you. Did you know King Edward VII also made a fleeting visit back in 1909?

History is deeply rooted outside too. The tree standing tall above the terraces was once a sapling of just-discovered Black Walnut Tree gifted to Thomas Villiers by Captain Hook in the 1770’s.
