Gardens within a garden
An 18th Century estate in the Golden Valley
The gardens of this 18th Century estate within landscaped parkland of some 220 acres, are set off by mature specimen trees and views across to the Black Mountains. Approaching the main house, pink roses jostle with purple and silver perennials in the cottage garden. A side garden to the lodge has been designed around a simple parterre and frames the entrance to the walled garden where an ornate summerhouse overlooks a central lawn.
Here, a combination of new English and classic old roses provide colour and scent whilst blue delphiniums, foxgloves and geraniums make for a classically inspired scheme with yew topiary to frame the gateways. Other gardens on the estate will also be developed in due course.
