Synopsis
Formal elements include a hornbeam allee with rill and reflective obelisk, a sequence of sweeping terraces around the house inspired by Hestercombe garden that feature clipped box hedges, a circular pond and seating areas. Informal parts include the lovely orchard, with ox-eye daisies mixed in with the grass, a large lake surrounded by moisture loving plants including rodgersias and candelabra primulas, and a mass of fine shrubs and trees including many acers, cornuses and roses. Quirky features include a very tall sculpture of a naked man perching on a tripod of poles, surveying the view across the Blackmore Vale... a great mix of the serious and the fun in this beautiful garden.
