Synopsis
The garden is designed as a formal structured arrangement of spaces, with a strong axial line running north-south through the site as a spine to unite the two main garden areas. The ‘thunder house’, inspired by a passage in Gertrude Jekyll’s writings, is the heart of the garden and marks the junction of the upper and lower gardens. From here a view back to the house across the formal lawn, with its exuberant planted borders, is contrasted with a view into the lower garden beyond. Here a large rectangular pool flanked by simple green lawns and contained by low yew hedges creates a calm and tranquil space, settled into the natural woodland surround.
