Wiltshire's 'Capability' Brown Gardens

To celebrate Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown’s 300th anniversary in 2016 book a stay in one of Wiltshire Farm Stay’s delightful B&B’s or self-catering accommodation and take your time to enjoy the beauty of his lasting horticultural legacy in Wiltshire.

Bowood House lies in within one of ‘Capability’ Brown’s most stunning and unspoilt landscapes. With an arboretum and pinetum and formal terraced flower beds he created a mix of woodlands and lawns sloping down to a winding lake.

Longleat House is surrounded by 900 acres of breath taking Capability Brown landscaped parkland.

At Corsham Court Capability Brown undertook the landscaping of the grounds, planting specimen trees and creating a ha-ha, great walk and lake.
Much of the 21 acres of the landscaped parkland at Wilton House are said to owe much to the work of Capability Brown.

In the National Trust village of Lacock he is believed to have made amendments to the parkland and tree planting surrounding Lacock Abbey.

Prior to Capability Brown’s death in 1783 he was commissioned to landscape the grounds of New Wardour Castle and the work was carried out for three years but was incomplete when he died.

So if you are visiting Wiltshire to see the gardens of Capability Brown book your B&B, self-catering cottage or even a shepherds hut with a Wiltshire Farm Stay member.
