Heale House and its eight acres of beautiful gardens lie beside the river Avon at Middle Woodford, just north of Salisbury, Wiltshire. Much of the house is unchanged since King Charles II hid here in 1651.
On a sunny summer's day Heale's formal gardens display spectacular colour while welcome shade can be found in the walled garden and quiet tranquility in the Japanese water garden (above). Sit on the banks of the river Avon and catch a glimpse of the trout for which this river is famous.
The garden centre offers a wide selection of flowers and other plants with professional advice. Next to the garden centre, enjoy homemade light lunches and teas in the coffee shop.
