Historic Overview of Injebreck House
The property was owned by the same family for almost 200 years and much investment, planning and passion have gone into the creation, successive planting design and the ongoing upkeep and garden development. During the 1800’s the site attracted huge numbers of visitors as the Island’s ‘Pleasure Gardens’ where a pavilion and over 700 acres of spectacular gardens were open to the public. The main house was created into a hotel and what followed was vast numbers of visitors, attracted to marvel the masses of rhododendrons and hydrangeas. One of the main selling features of Injebreck House is its magnificent broad leaf woodland, river frontage grounds and stunning gardens which have been created since Victorian times.
Now the gardens take best advantage of the natural surroundings, including the spring fed ponds, where the ‘Water Garden’ is located. Beech trees line the walkways and tower to over 100 feet high and small micro climatic areas have developed within the landscape, creating homes for many rare plants including giant gunneras and a plethora of acers.
Nearer the house, many paths lead around a Victorian walled garden, with the upper area used for vegetable production, locating two greenhouses. Nestled into the hillside is a sheltered orchard for soft fruit production, plums, apples and pears. It is a gardeners dream.
