Gardens of Easton Lodge online: information and bookings

The Gardens, grounds and whole estate of Easton Lodge date back to Tudor times. It is believed that, in 1590, Elizabeth I granted the 10,000 acre Manor of Estaines to Henry Maynard as a reward for his duties as Private Secretary.

In 1865, following the deaths of both her father and grandfather in quick succession, Frances ‘Daisy’ Maynard inherited the estate of Easton Lodge. She was just three years old. She grew up to be a noted beauty of considerable wealth and was courted by many suitors. Even Disraeli encouraged a union between Daisy and Prince Leopold, the youngest son of Queen Victoria

In 1902, the Gardens underwent their most radical change yet when the Countess commissioned Harold Peto to redesign them. The son of Sir Morton Peto, the engineer and railway magnate, he grew up at Somerleyton Hall on the Suffolk coast, surrounded by splendid gardens
