Levens Hall is a fascinating and beautiful Elizabethan mansion, home to the Bagot family. The Hall contains fine oak panelling, ornate plasterwork, Cordova leather wall coverings, period furniture, paintings and clocks, and the earliest examples of English patchwork.
Dating from the 1690s this 10-acre garden includes the world’s oldest topiary gardens, together with spectacular herbaceous borders, beech hedges and an ever-changing array of over 30,000 bedding plants.
Levens Kitchen offers a delicious, seasonally inspired menu with a strong focus on fresh local produce, much sourced from the Estate.
