About Us

The Walled Garden is a beautiful five-acre landscaped formal garden situated in Moreton, Dorset. With on site café, garden shop (including a huge range of plants for sale), children’s play park, and a range of small animals to see! The Walled Garden also offers FREE PARKING and dogs on leads are welcome. We are the perfect day out in Dorset. Explore the gardens solo, or with friends, and stop by the Dovecote Café for delicious homemade food, fresh cakes, pasties and more! We also host regular seasonal and unique events from garden trails for children, crafts, fetes, yoga, open air art exhibitions, and more! 

For the formal gardens, a suggested Admission Donation of £3 is politely requested (not required for family area or café). All donations go back in to the continued maintenance and development of the site.

The Walled Garden re-opened to the public in May 2015, and has undergone significant replanting and restoration since then.  A wide variety of perennial plants sit in the boarders, which have been styled in original Georgian and Victorian designs. 2022 will see continued development of different areas in the garden, led by our Head Gardener Martin and his team. We’ll also be looking to expand the services we provide, events, and more. We look forward to seeing you!

Moreton village is close to the historic market town of Dorchester and situated on the River Frome. Moreton has become well known because of its association with T. E. Lawrence, also known as Lawrence of Arabia.  T. E. Lawrence lived near to Moreton when he served at Bovington Camp and was later buried in Moreton Church Yard.  Every year thousands of visitors are drawn to Moreton to visit his grave, which backs onto The Walled Garden.  Many visitors also visit the village to see the Church’s unique engraved glass windows by poet and artist Sir Laurence Whistler.
