THE GROUNDS

​The Gardens

Baldon House is set in 60 acres of beautiful, unspoiled grounds. There are several fields put to pasture where Aberdeen Angus cattle graze alongside horses.  Nearer to the house there is a historic stable yard and several barns and a working walled kitchen garden still overseen by Jack, the Gardener who started work at the house as the Garden boy, aged 14, seventy two years ago!  Adjacent to the Barns is a tennis court and various lawns surround the house.

​The Animals

Children will love the array of animals at Baldon House: chickens, sheep, horses, cows - even Peregrine the Peacock!  Collect fresh eggs in the morning, or feed the sheep in the evening. Lambing and shearing happen in the Spring. Pony rides are available by special arrangement.

The Woods

There are 20 acres of woodland, full of wildlife with a series of lakes and a mediaeval bridge marking the ancient road from London to Oxford.  Bluebells carpeting the wood in May are one of the highlights of the year. Walking, fishing, even shooting are just some of the activities guests can enjoy.
