Grounds and Gardens
Lose yourself in Beaulieu’s serene grounds and gardens.
From the Mill Pond walk, the Victorian Flower and Kitchen Gardens to the Wilderness Garden and Alice’s Topiary Wonderland, their beautiful natural spaces have their own historical treasures waiting to be turned into a winter wonderland for you to explore.
PALACE HOUSE AND BEAULIEU ABBEY GROUNDS
Palace House, once the gatehouse of the medieval Beaulieu Abbey, has been the Montagu family home since 1538.
In an idyllic New Forest setting, overlooking the picturesque Beaulieu River millpond, Palace House was remodeled and extended during the 1800s and is now a fine example of a Victorian country house. Inside, its ecclesiastical heritage sets the grand gothic tone for a home bristling with character and adorned with family treasures, portraits, and memorabilia. As you enter, delight in carols from local choir, the Beaulieu Warblers, then warm yourself in front of a roaring fire, admire a Christmas tree in every room, with a towering 20ft-tall tree as the impressive centrepiece in the main hall.
Little Beaulieu is the perfect place for children to let their imagination run wild. Brand new in 2020, this wooden replica of Palace House is the perfect place for kids to burn off some steam.
Highlights include secret passageways, epic climbing walls and an exhilarating zip wire, as well as beautifully lit with festive lights this season.
Step off the central pathway to enjoy views across the tidal Beaulieu River from this meandering route.
You’ll pass ancient oak trees and thick reed beds, both home to a variety of New Forest bird life.
