  • Lady Highgrove's Rose Garden


    The last of the Highgrove ladies to live at Highgrove House in the 1880s had this quaint, terraced garden built off of the solarium. Roses have been planted and maintained here since, and the terrace offers a warm, sunny place to relax, providing a number of benches and a picnic table.

  • The Front Courtyard


    This area, adjacent to the long driveway, is frequently used for sporting games or other outdoor activities. It is essentially more of a large lawn than a courtyard, and doesn't offer much more than fresh air, green grass and an impressive view of the front of the house.

  • The Side Lawn


    This massive lawn stretches out from the south side of the house right down to the estate's wooded areas and riding trails. It is the perfect place to go for a quiet walk if you're not into the more rural setting of the rest of the grounds.

  • The Woods & Trails


    The woods have belonged to the Highgrove estate since its founding in the mid 1700s. Previously used for hunting, they now offer walking and riding trails for the residents and staff of the home. Naturally, the estate is now fenced in, to keep the locals out and the residents in.

  • The Farm Allotments


    Highgrove's farming facilities are small and community based. The allotments are Highgroves vegetable gardens, where residents may be assigned to gardening chores to build character and learn new skills. All allotments and paddocks are overseen by the head of agriculture.

  • The Livestock Paddocks


    Highgrove is home to a number of farmyard animals, and this is where they are housed when they're not in the barn due to inclement weather. The estate maintains a number of sheep, goats, chickens, geese and a couple of cows. Residents may also be assigned to chores here.
