Seasonal delights await at one of Britain’s best Georgian gardens

- Www.nationaltr­

Spring is the best time to visit this elegant Welsh country house, thanks to the impressive array of tulips that spring forth amid all the neat topiary. The garden was always a primary concern for successive generation­s of the Yorke family who owned Erddig for more than 250 years.

Such continuity meant that Erddig was able to escape the ravages of fashion, with the 18th-century walled garden perhaps the best surviving example of its kind in Britain, while the wider estate includes 1,200 acres of landscaped pleasure gardens.

Inside, Erddig has a reputation as “the most evocative Upstairs, Downstairs house” in Britain, a reference to the 1970s TV series that portrayed both the family and the servants of an aristocrat­ic house.
