The extensive grounds play host to a wonderland of formal gardens, unspoilt woodland and an historic Victorian kitchen garden


Under the supervision of head gardener Pascal Ybert, the team of four tend the grounds as if they were their own.

In the mid-19th century, owner of the time, the Reverend W Bateman, re-landscaped the grounds and created more or less what we see today, the attractive lake, the beautiful specimen trees, the romantic walks and the kitchen garden itself. His wonderful creation is a project in progress with developments and new ideas ongoing.

The historic kitchen garden once again provides an abundance of seasonal fruits and vegetables, whilst the 24 bee hives produce all the hotel's honey requirements throughout the year. 

Whether it's a stroll through the woods, a visit to the kitchen garden or simply a snooze by the pool, the beautiful Longueville gardens has something for everyone! 

Longueville Manor's "New Leaf" programme is dedicated to protecting the delicate resources and environment that surrounds it and is committed to activities which develop sustainable practices in five key areas:

  • The Environment
  • Education 
  • Recycling
  • Water saving
  • Energy saving

Working closely with suppliers, the local community as a whole and numerous business partners, quantum steps are being made towards achieving a more sustainable future.
