The gardens at Washington House form part of an original 136-acre estate designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel in the 1850s under the influence of William Nesfield, a tree expert known for his work at the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. A south-facing terrace runs the full length of the five-bedroom house and provides a vantage point to look over the landscaped mature gardens and woodland out to the sea beyond. From the 2.9-acre grounds there is direct access to the coastal path and Watcombe beach.
