History

The beautiful walled garden on The Parke Estate, Dartmoor National Park, was originally owned by Major Hole prior to The National Trust, who have managed the house and grounds since 1976. 

The main house is used as offices for The Dartmoor National Park Authority and the adjacent buildings are occupied by The National Trust.

The garden originally supplied vegetables for the estate and in the early 20th century, the glasshouse supplied grapes oranges and melons from the melon pit.

The Community Garden is open to everyone in the local area to come and grow their own fruit and vegetables, share knowledge and learn new skills.
