Brief Description

The gardens at Bencombe House are associated with an early 18th-century house.

History

In the late 18th century Bencombe House belonged to a Mr Edward Dorney, whose family had lived there for some time. The gardens and grounds appear to have been well-developed by the late 19th century as sale particulars from 1875 referred to well-kept lawns, terraces, shrubberies, gardens, carriage drives & walks. In 1926 the house was described as having a beautiful garden.
