Easton Walled Gardens
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.
