Easton Walled Gar­dens

Exclusively British - - CRAFTSMANSHIP -

This is a re­mark­able re­dis­cov­ery of a gar­den 'lost' when the Re­gency house at its cen­tre was de­mol­ished af­ter World War II. Lady Ur­sula Chome­ley's gar­den is not just a lovely English gar­den nor just the au­then­tic res­cue of a 400 year old hor­ti­cul­tural space, she has ap­proached its restora­tion and pre­sen­ta­tion to vis­i­tors with imag­i­na­tion and style. There is plenty to de­light vis­i­tors, a turf maze, yew tun­nel, shrub­beries, mead­ows, an un­usual rose gar­den, cut-flower and veg­etable gar­dens, a cot­tage gar­den, long bor­ders, or­chards and the White Space Gar­den. The gar­dens spe­cialise in sweet peas and snow­drops, there's a his­tory room and sev­eral beau­ti­fully re­stored places to stay, as well as a meadow gazebo for ro­man­tic pro­pos­als or just es­cap­ing for an af­ter­noon. It is only 5 min­utes from the A1 but re­mains a hid­den gem.
