Situated nearby to Loddon and Beccles our gardens surround Raveningham Hall, home to Sir Nicholas and Lady Bacon (and home to the Bacon family since 1735).
Enjoy the beauty of our varied and ever-changing floral seasons. The Gardens are set out as the Edwardian plans with large herbaceous borders surrounding a Victorian walled kitchen garden. In the 1960s the planting was enhanced by the inspiration of Priscilla, Lady Bacon an energetic plantswoman who collected many rare species from around the world transforming the garden over 50 years. The walled kitchen garden was brought back to full working order in the last 20 years and is now producing fruit and vegetables for the House. There is a fine late 19th century Boulton and Paul range of glasshouses, stocked conservatory and melon pits, all in working order.
A Millennium project by Nicholas Bacon to build a lake on the North side of the House is now firmly established as is an Arboretum that was planted after the destruction of a wood in the 1987 gale; this gave an opportunity to plant a large variety of trees and shrubs under a plan designed by the eminent plantsman Roy Lancaster. New additions to the garden include a Herb Garden, a Stumpery and a garden designed around Francis Bacon’s essays based on the passage of time.
The main specialities of the garden are snowdrops followed by bulbs in early spring, later in the season agapanthus are a main feature. Our Gardens are circa 10 acres all in a glorious 18th Century parkland setting with sculpture by Susan Bacon in and around the gardens. Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.

PSH Environmental are a family owned and run skip hire and waste management company in Norwich. Having started the business in 1985, PSH Environmental have over 35 years’ experience in the industry and are ever-developing new technology in their skip yard to make this process simpler and more environmentally friendly for everyone.
Since the beginning the goal for PSH Environmental has always been to succeed in sending zero waste to landfill. Working in conjunction with Seneca Environmental Solutions, PSH Environmental is one of three household waste treatment and disposal plants used by Norfolk County Council.
First and foremost, PSH Environmental is a skip hire company, having always manufactured and hired out their skips from the very start. They have a range of skips suitable for domestic use, commercial renovations and construction developments. These include 2-12 yard skips and roll-on skips, as well as asbestos and plasterboard specialist skips.
An extraction process is carried out for every skip received in the yard to ensure all waste is segregated to either be used again, recycled or disposed of appropriately. From this, PSH Environmental have extracted aggregate materials that can be re-used for the likes of driveways, roads, potholes, building sites, new build foundations and walls, and much more. If you’d like to purchase a bag of these from PSH Environmental, call them on 01603 721533 to discuss your requirements.
Whilst PSH Environmental doesn’t accept plasterboard being disposed of in their skips (as once mixed with other waste, this material makes it difficult to separate waste that can be reused), this doesn’t mean that you need to hire an entire specialist plasterboard skip to remove it from your property. PSH Environmental do provide the option to purchase plasterboard sacks with your skip and as many as you want depending on how much you have to dispose of.
PSH Environmental work to make the skip hire process as simple as possible for its customers but are aware that many questions arise when looking to hire a skip due to different property types, waste disposal, parking permissions, and so on. Should you have a question, PSH Environmental do work to answer as many as they can on their blog or call a member of their team on 01603 721533.
