    “This is a garden that breathes elegance, and will embrace you in the quality of it’s design and planting. Around the C18th Rectory with views to gentle parkland and the distant Dorset countryside are four acres displaying the best qualities of an English country garden”.

    In early summer the bulbs, blossom and bog garden are enchanting; and in high summer the: “herbaceous borders are sensational, as is the total contrast of the exuberantly planted terrace… But more than anything else it is the layers of colour, texture and shape including tall surrounding trees, immaculate yew pyramids, domed Portuguese laurels and luxuriant waterside marginals” that will captivate you.
