Coach Trip to Mottisfont Abbey and Gardens
Mottisfont is a house and gallery set in riverside gardens, open all year round
The gardens are particularly famous for the National Collection of old-fashioned roses, which flower once a year starting in June. but there’s plenty to see in all seasons including an innovative Kitchen Garden
The house pays homage to its last owners, the Russell family, who made Mottisfont their weekend retreat in the 1930s. Maud Russell, a society hostess and patron of the arts, shaped the house we see today. She commissioned Rex Whistler to create an extraordinary drawing room, full of illusions. And there are hints of medieval history here, too.
The trip leaves the New Haw Institute at 9.00 and aims to be back by 5pm.
Provisional cost of the trip is £25 for National Trust members and £41 for non NT members
