Ralph Court Gardens

         
Bromyard Herefordshire England

History

The house was built in 1850 for Reverend Arthur Lucton Childe. The property was designed by architect, Abraham Perkins from Worcester and was built to offer a property large enough for the reverends family and offering large formal gardens. The total cost of the neo tudor style building was £1370.


The present owners, Stephen and Paula Morgan purchased the property in 2004. The garden as the photo shows was mainly grass and was used by the previous owner as a mini golf course.

As keen gardeners the Morgans set about creating a garden that incorporated a variety of styles and themes. Stephen had trained in horticulture and worked on a number of gold medal large gardens at the Chelsea and Hampton Court shows. Over the years they have acquired a number of feature sculptures from Herefordshire and beyond and used these to create the themes seen in the garden today.

The gardens are designed to provide fun and interest in gardening. Water features play a major part as they add sound and movement to the gardens.


The Gardens

There are 12 amazing gardens set in the grounds of this gothic rectory. From Italy to Africa the gardens transport you around the world and beyond into a fantasy world.

Whether you are an adult or a child you will be mesmerised with the features and be surprised around every corner of the 3 acre garden.

The garden is wheel chair friendly and all areas are accessible.

Start your journey through the African jungle taking the tree top walkway. Walk behind the water cascade and enjoy the lush tropical planting.

Visit the incredible Triton Pool with its water jets but beware of the rising water. Pass through the Pirate garden with its run aground galleon.

See the beautiful Italian Piazza incorporating a church and bell tower with pencil cupressus conifers under-planted with lavender.

Pass by Toad Hall in the Willow garden before walking through the Gunnera maze. If you do find your way out then make sure you do not disturb 'Edwina', the resident dragon!

Take a seat in the tranquil Japanese garden with tea house and trickling tree waterlily pool.

New for 2017, is the Monet Garden, recreating his Japanese Bridge at Giverny, where visitors will be able to look through a frame and see the famous view live and in 3D !

Restaurant

Don't forget to visit the resaturant, which has indoor seating for up to 80 and an outdoor terrace with views over the Malverns. Daily specials and home made cakes are on offer !

Halloween 001Head-less horseman appears every night!!

Once again, Ralph Court Gardens will be transformed into a horrific Halloween venue with hundreds of glowing pumpkins interspersed with smoke and creatures of the night will fill the gardens creating a memorable visit.

Using a clever mix of sounds and light effects the event held over nine days from 27th October through to 4th November will be a 'must see' for the region. The gardens will be open during these dates from 6pm - 8pm every evening.

Animated characters have been imported from the USA and special visual effects combine to make this a memorable and unique Halloween experience.

This year, a 'Spooky Hollow' themed section is being created complete with bandstand where the resident skeleton band will be playing their ragtime music. Of course, the graveyard would not be complete without a visit from the headless horseman! The displays will be created to ensure they are suitable for all age groups and our 'Horror Tunnel' will be accessible for those who like a fright!

In addition, from Thursday 1st November - Sunday 4th November we will be presenting a performance of 'The Canterville Ghost'.

The restaurant will be producing a Halloween themed menu offering a wide selection of dishes including 'Vampire soup' and 'Fowl &Toadstool pie' and of course our Halloween traditional 'Pumpkin
Pie'.

Tickets are available online or over the counter in the restaurant. Purchase tickets before 30th September to get discounted rates.
