Bid­dulph Grange Gar­den, Stafford­shire

Bid­dulph Grange Gar­den is one of the most ex­cit­ing sur­vivals of the great age of Vic­to­rian gar­den­ing. The gar­den was the vi­sion of one man, James Bate­man, who from 1841 spent more than twenty years col­lect­ing plants from all over the world. The Pine­tum is a high­light in win­ter es­pe­cially if you are lucky enough to catch snow on the Mon­key puz­zle trees. na­tion­al­trust.org.uk/bid­dulph-grange-gar­den

Bel­ton House, Lin­colnshire

Bel­ton's for­mal gar­dens, plea­sure grounds and boat­ing lakes pro­vide a charm­ing place for a stroll. The long and wind­ing frost­cov­ered paths, lead­ing to the boat­ing lake, cre­ate win­try views to in­spire. The tran­quil mir­ror pond lies in sight of the man­sion, presided over by the fig­ure of a Ro­man god­dess statue and the walk­ing beech tree. The Pal­la­dian style stone tem­ple pro­vides a shel­tered spot to sit and en­joy the won­der­ful re­flec­tions on the pond. www.na­tion­al­trust.org.uk/bel­ton-house
