Famed as the home of the leg­endary gar­den de­signer and writer Rose­mary Verey, Barns­ley House be­longed to the fam­ily of Verey’s hus­band David, whom she mar­ried in 1939. Verey’s ge­nius was to adapt grand hor­ti­cul­tural de­signs from many great houses and chateaux for her 17th-cen­tury Cotswold-stone rec­tory; in do­ing so she in­spired gen­er­a­tions of gardeners, in­clud­ing the Prince of Wales, who sought her ex­per­tise for High­grove. The gar­dens con­tinue to be one of the high­lights of this com­fort­able 18-bed­room ho­tel, from the labur­num walk to the or­na­men­tal veg­etable gar­den.

Barns­ley House is fa­mous for its gar­dens; al­li­ums in bloom along the labur­num walk; take a stroll among the mag­no­lia trees and top­i­ary. CLOCK­WISE FROM ABOVE
