Constructed in 1920 by Mr Thomas Simpson, today, Compton Acres gardens are still acknowledged as one of the finest privately owned gardens in England. Enjoy over 10 acres of horticultural heaven, relax in our charming Café & Tea Rooms, browse the treasures in our Gifted Moment store or delve into the exciting world of plants within our Plant Centre.
Since 2003 the gardens have undergone a great deal of development; including the construction of the Compton Acres Gift Shop, Café and Tearooms, Plant Centre, Gifted Moment store and the award-winning Italian Villa. The Gardens themselves have been refurbished to a high standard of horticulture including planting many thousand new plants to add interest to all groups of visitors. The garden has 5 main themed gardens joined by a series of links, including a sub-tropical area, southern Hemisphere collection adding more variety to the planting styles in the garden.
