English Garden Visit Homestay

English Garden Visit Homestay

This homestay is designed for those people who are interested in visiting and learning about the hidden treasure of middle England's private and public gardens. Enjoy this rare English Garden Visit Homestay to relax in these fine gardens, either individually or in a small, friendly group.


An English Garden Visit Homestay with Homestay England will give you the special opportunity to spend time in pretty private gardens that large tour parties do not have access to. These friendly family garden visits offer wonderful photo opportunities due to their privacy.


The individual or small group arrangement gives you the opportunity to chat with real private garden owners over tea in their own gardens. The gardening secrets they share with you are invaluable, as is the professional gardening information given to you by your guide.

This relaxed Garden Visit Homestay offers the flexibility of having ample time to fully enjoy the spacious grandeur of splendid public gardens such as the impressive Belton House Garden. These interesting gardens were restored to their former George II glory in the 19th century. Door-to door transport ensures that you are not too tired, despite taking healthy walks in such magnificent grounds.


This exciting garden visit homestay offers the fascinating contrast of smaller private gardens with the grandeur of historical public English gardens, such as Belton House Garden. Belton House boasts an 'Italian Garden' and a 'Dutch Garden' with clipped yews. When exploring these extensive grounds be sure to discover the cute little boathouse on the lakeside.
