Galloway House Gardens - NEW FOR 2017

Description

The garden is situated on the Solway Firth and benefits from the Gulf Stream. Visitors can wander through the arboretum on a network of hard and grass paths, which features handerchief trees, soaring douglas firs, beeches, oaks, and a particularly splendid horse chestnut, species rhododendrons and magnolias. Our walled garden, which is undergoing restoration, will be open on the day where refreshments will be served.
