Neglected for many years Belmont’s Walled Garden has been transformed since 2017 with the help and inspiration of renowned landscape architect Bunny Guinness.Home to our organic kitchen garden, the raised beds and heritage fruit trees provide delicious seasonal produce for our talented chef, but the Walled Garden is about more than fruit and vegetables.
Surrounded by 15 foot stone walls and built on a slope with panoramic views across the Vale of Bourton, the Bristol Channel and Wales beyond the Walled Garden now boasts a striking tiered amphitheatre that can accommodate comfortably more than 1,000 guests and is a stunning space for performances, theatre, networking events or gatherings.

The Pear Drop is an historic walled meadow hidden in our ancient woodland. Left for decades to be invaded by scrub it has now been sensitively managed to create a wildflower pasture beneath mature trees and surrounded by an 18th century stone wall.
From isolated reflection to group reconnection this versatile space could also be used for (much) larger gatherings.
Proposed for 2020 the Indian Pavilion will offer a woodland venue quite unlike any other. Simple and open the Indian Pavilion is comprised of teak columns from Rajasthan built around a large open, wooden deck.
