Painshill Park is an elegant 18th century landscape garden just outside London. Its 158 acre site includes a lake, which is overlooked by the vineyard.

LOCATION OF PAINSHILL PARK

It is hard to believe that Painshill Park is less than a mile off the A3 at Cobham and only just inside the M25. It is a country estate of just the right size, by which we mean that it looks expansive but can quite easily be explored in its entirety in a couple of hours. You can even take your dog if he or she is happy to stay on a lead.

PAINSHILL’S VINEYARD

The vineyard itself is tiny by commercial standards, on a south-facing slope overlooking the lake. Sparkling Wine is made by the respected Bluebell Vineyard Estate and is available only from the Painshill shop.

As a standalone vineyard, it would perhaps not make an exciting visit, but the context of stunning gardens, where every view is a picture postcard and the astonishing fact that it is all run by a charity with volunteer workers makes it truly a pleasure.

OTHER ATTRACTIONS WITHIN PAINSHILL

There is a lake, a grotto, a Chinese bridge and they even have a Temple of Bacchus, dedicated to the Roman god of wine – how cool is that? Sadly, though, it is in need of major restoration. If you are able to contribute, find out more or donate online.

THE SHOP

The gift shop features a well-chosen selection of items and greetings cards, and includes their own wine when stocks allow.
