Godinton House and Gardens

An ancient estate surrounded by magnificent parkland – a beautifully restored house and gardens.


Godinton is a comfortable, much-loved home; each room has a different feel, a contrast on a theme, not designed by architect or curator but for the taste and enjoyment of those who lived here over the centuries and now for visitors.

Tours of the house are led by expert guides unravelling the 600 years of history and revealing an excellent country house collection of furniture, art, porcelain and curios.

Why not enjoy some delicious homemade cakes and refreshments in the old Billiard Room or take in the delights of the famous yew hedge that surrounds the formal gardens with the wild, Italian and walled gardens beyond, full of colour and interest throughout the seasons.

This working estate has so much to offer its guests including events, courses and workshops that are run throughout the year and enjoyed by all.
