Devon Sculpture Park and the Wilded Capability Brown gardens are extraordinary. They form the perfect backdrop for your creative, rewilded retreat.
‘One of the most beautiful gardens I have seen…’ Toby Buckland, gardener, TV presenter and author.
This is one of the last remaining Capability Brown gardens in the South West. It is surrounded by an ancient, Rewilded deer park. Mamhead Park (South) sits just a few miles south of Exeter on Haldon Hill facing south east with endless sea views. It is a centre for Natural Climate Solutions and a leader in smaller scale Rewilding.
Come and experience our approach to Rewilding and see the impact it makes first hand. You can even learn how to wild your garden or field.
We host a number of guided tours including a 2 hour Rewilding Tour of the Wilded lands (£35pp) with a Rewilding expert plus an all day Rewilding tour of the Rewilded lands and the Wilded Capability Brown gardens, lunch included (£85pp). To enquire email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The estate is owned by the Letts family who invented the commercial diary over 200 years ago. The Letts publishing business has been a leader in personal media and education ever since. Today the family is focused on the arts, education and natural solutions to the climate crisis.
Lakes and streams weave through a number of historic buildings and follies, including the famed Robert Adam Orangery, providing constant contours for sculpture. Our nationally important collection of historic trees frame each vista and house thousands of birds and wildlife. Some of our trees are 1,000 years old, some were planted this year.
The sculpture park is surrounded by a 100 acre Rewilding project which, along with the historic gardens, is leading the way in small and medium scale Rewilding. Visitors get to experience natural climate solutions in action. Biodiversity abounds, nature leads. A place where time stood still. Where wildlife and plantlife regeneration comes first.
We believe that nature and wildlife form part of the living sculpture. Here they co-exist with environmental artworks. We see it as one vast art installation. After all, art is place.
