Threave Garden and Estate

 

 

Threave Garden and  Estate is the perfect place for a family day out – or two: there’s so much to see and do here, you may not fit it all in to one visit.

A garden for all seasons and a haven for wildlife, with an osprey platform and bat reserve

Open daily 29 March 2019 to 22 December 2019. Please check our website or phone for details 01556 502575 or email threave@nts.org.uk.
Threave’s wonderful garden has been created over the years by students of the Trust’s School of Heritage Gardening – and is a fine example of landscaped beauty. The garden is divided into a series of smaller gardens to showcase different styles, including glasshouses, formal gardens, rockery, RHS trial beds, rose garden and walled garden, and new for 2019, a new garden of contemplation.
At the centre stands Threave House, designed in the Scottish Baronial style in 1871 for the Gordon family. Many of its rooms are displayed as they were in the 1930s.
The wider estate caters for more adventurous tastes, and includes our flagship bat reserve. The nature reserve is a Special Protection Area for breeding waders and wintering wildfowl – pink-footed geese and Greenland white-fronted geese are regular visitors.
