Nestled in the Surrey countryside near Godalming, this internationally renowned five-acre garden is formed by a series of “rooms” which surround and complement a family home dating from the 16th century.  From the old Cottage Garden with delightfully informal planting in a formal setting, to the robust Pergola of Bargate stone by W.D.Caröe, the Arts and Crafts architect and great grandfather of the present owners, to the Water Garden, laid out and planted by Gertrude Jekyll in 1911, and the newly designed and planted Centenary Garden, Vann offers inspiration to expert and amateur gardeners alike.


We would be delighted to welcome from the local area household groups, support bubbles and two people – all of whom can meet for recreational purposes. We are closely following all the guidelines and will endeavour to keep our social media pages updated with further information. By w/c 29 March we hope groups of six will be allowed to meet outside.
There is no need to prebook, but please ensure you always social distance to protect our gardeners and other visitors. Please note there are no toilet facilities, nor refreshments at this time. Tickets are £10 and come with a free booklet.

“There are gardens where the fusion of art and nature, the wild and cultivated, is so seamless that they feel like dream landscapes – too natural to be man-made yet too perfect to be real. The woodland water garden at Vann is one of those enchanting places…”
