Like many gardens, the Lydney Park grounds and Lydney Park Spring Gardens have evolved over time. The original house at Lydney Park was surrounded by a Pleasure Garden and a large walled garden, which backed onto the Deer Park. Overtime many impressive, exotic and rare trees have been planted in the Deer Park by successive generations of the family.

Some of the original formal gardens at Lydney Park were cleared to grow potatoes during the Second World War, leaving a blank canvas for the second Lord and Lady Bledisloe. As a result, in the 1950's, a paved terrace, two fountain pools, hedges and lawns were introduced into the garden together with a major replanting programme - the result is an impressive display of spring colour. Flowering cherries, Magnolias, scented, spring flowering shrubs and drifts of spring bulbs provide a stunning entrance to Lydney Park Gardens.

Delve deeper into the grounds at Lydney Park Gardens and you'll find the 8 acre woodland garden a place of tranquil, natural beauty. Whilst underlying soil in the gardens is not acidic, the leafmould created by the surrounding oak and chestnut trees suits rhododendrons and other acid loving plants. As a result, the Lydney Parks woodland garden is full of colourful Azaleas, Rhododendrons, Corylopsis and Pieris as well as Magnolias, Acers and Cornus.
