Abbey Dore Court

Abbey Dore Court

Abbey Dore Court is a minor country house in Abbey Dore, Herefordshire, England.

It was built in the Golden Valley in the late 19th century, perhaps for Capt. Thomas Freke Lewis, (the owner in 1876), on the site of the former public house, the Red Lion Inn.

It was later owned by the Prothero's of Malpas Court. The house is now surrounded by a significant plantsman’s garden created by the present owner, Mrs. C.L. Ward, since 1976.

The garden is open to the public several days a week in the summer months. The abbey, Dore Abbey is just across the fields or down the road.
