ROUSHAM HOUSE & GAR­DEN

Is­abel Ban­ner­man As a design duo, Is­abel and hus­band Ju­lian look to clas­si­cal ref­er­ences.

Gardens Illustrated Magazine - - Dig In Plantsman’s Favourites -

No one can doubt that the changes wrought by Charles Bridge­man and par­tic­u­larly Wil­liam Kent at Rousham be­tween 1719 and 1741, shaped not only British, but Euro­pean and Amer­i­can gar­den design in the fol­low­ing cen­tury. Ju­lian and I have long ven­er­ated this gar­den for its sim­plic­ity; for its wit, sen­su­al­ity and heart; for the dif­fer­ent charms of the walled gar­den; and for the con­ti­nu­ity brought to it by the Cot­trell-Dormer fam­ily, who com­mis­sioned it orig­i­nally, and who tend it with such a light and gen­er­ous hand to­day.
