STOCKBRIDGE, MOTTISFONT ABBEY & ROSE GARDENS
Wednesday 21st June 2023
Start the day with morning coffee and a browse in the pretty market town of Stockbridge. Later, we visit Mottisfont Abbey which is a Grade 1 listed building hidden deep in the English countryside. Dating back to 1201 and now owned by the National Trust, this former priory is home to the National Collection of pre-1900 old fashioned roses; thousands of varieties of beautiful roses which live in the red-bricked walled gardens. Enjoy their heady scents during a warm summer day in the beautiful setting of this ancient priory. Enjoy a free flow tour of the abbey and an annual treat of ruins and roses.
