A new English Flower Garden set within the grounds of a country estate. Begun in 2010, the 10-acre gardens have been designed by head gardener Mat Reese in conjunction with the owners, and are influenced by Great Dixter in Sussex and the writings of iconic gardeners Christopher Lloyd, William Robinson and Vita Sackville-West. The garden includes abundantly planted terraces and long borders; a stumpery with ferns and unusual shade plants; and a topiary meadow.
Tall yew hedges form themed rooms, including: a cool garden; a hot garden; a rose-clad cloister garden; and a large pond garden that reflects the dynamic planting on all sides. The walled garden contains areas for fruit, vegetables and cut flowers, alongside a white garden with four small fountains. The latest development is a striking yew and box parterre. The succession of hard-working garden plants alongside the unusual and rare, means there is always something of interest in the garden.
