Enjoy a stay and guided garden tour at Barnsley House
Featuring knot gardens, statues by Simon Verity, the famous Laburnum Walk and an ornamental fruit and vegetable garden, the grounds at Barnsley House are among England’s loveliest settings. It was the garden writer and designer Rosemary Verey who began redesigning Barnsley House’s gardens in the 1950s, to both critical acclaim and global interest. This year is the centenary of Verey’s birth, so the time is right to celebrate her work and learn from her legacy. You can also find out more about the rich history of Barnsley House’s gardens in our feature by Anna Pavord on page 50.
Now an exclusive boutique hotel with restaurant and spa, Barnsley House offers indulgent comfort within a glorious setting and makes the perfect base for exploring all that the Cotswolds have to offer. barnsleyhouse.com
