Colclough Walled Garden
Near Crown Quarter
Tintern Abbey was a Cistercian abbey located on the Hook peninsula, between New Ross and Hook Lighthouse and boasts the stunning Colclough walled gardens within the abbey itself.
The Georgian Walled Garden was built by the Colclough family over 200 years ago, before 1814. Restoration work was carried out by volunteers and began in July 2010. The original layout of the Walled Garden has been reinstated as it was in the 1830’s. The main features of this stunning 2.5 acre Walled
Garden include curved corners, two intra mural structures on the dividing brick wall which splits the
garden into two sections, Ornamental to the east and Kitchen to the west and a river, crossed by 5 bridges, which flows through the length of the Walled Garden.
It is situated in a verdant vale with beautiful wooded scenery enjoy and to stroll through filled with songbirds. Pass through the quondam village of Tintern on your travels along the woodland
path where bluebells and wild garlic are in abundance in springtime. In summer beech trees surround you in shade until the open blue sky of the Walled Garden is reached. Keep an eye out for the Culclough eagles.
