Mottisfont is an 18th-century House with a medieval priory at it's heart. Eight centuries of history are buried deep within the walls of the former Augustinian Priory built in 1201, now shaped by it's many owners.
Maud Russell made Mottisfont her home in the 1930's, bringing artists, writers and designers for weekend retreats, to relax and create works inspired by the House and it's history.
The stunning walled gardens attract visitors year round, in particular for the world famous collection of old fashioned roses that flower once a year in June.
After you've taken in the house and gardens, treat yourself in one of the cafes, shop or plant centre.
