The 17th century Manor House is set in an acre of garden, a third given over to meadow and orchard trees. Local materials predominate and the Cotswold stone of the house itself, echoes throughout the garden. There are numerous outbuildings and areas encased in traditional Cotswold dry stone walls. Two parterres have been created within the footprint of former fallen barns, In spring they are coloured with tulips. A stone font and antique stone urns are planted with pink, pert tulips, colours which echo in the beds and borders. Tulips herald the awakening of the spring garden, deliberate, colour coordinated plantings complement the more haphazard rush of bluebells and wild garlic. Flowering shrubs and trees bring grace and elegance aloft; flowering cherries in pink and white, lilacs and fruit tree blossom. These transient blooms are underpinned with perennial foundations; box parterres, pyramids and balls afford year round interest and a touch of formality.
