FREE entrance to the gardens or for a walk (1st Nov/31st Mar), our Scented Botanist Bistro serves delicious brunches & lunches as well as freshly brewed coffees, teas and homemade cakes. Browse in our perfumery and plant shop, purchase one of our fine fragrances (15ml-100ml bottles produced on the estate), scented and unusual indoor plants, a selection of locally sourced & botanical gifts or a beautiful Parterre scented candle.
Our favourite fragrances for Spring are..
Run of the River: a sparkling, fresh fragrance inspired by the river rushing over the mill race here at Keyneston Mill. Featuring bergamot mint and lemon thyme grown on the estate with zesty lemon and lime, underpinned by rare and exotic frankincense. Springtime in a bottle!
A Tribute to Edith: a beautiful, sophisticated and luxurious rose perfume with geranium for a modern accent. Sandalwood and a touch of patchouli bring a velvety note to this scent which is reminiscent of Paris in the jazz era.
