More about The Coach House Garden

This is a garden whose strengths lie in structure, design and planting. Although a little less than an acre and a half, the space feels a lot larger having been divided into rooms with yew and box hedging providing a sense of mystery and enclosure. The house is surrounded by a York Stone terrace with steps leading to lawns on two levels, flanked by herbaceous borders with a scented rose garden beyond. A 'green' room with pleached lime allee and goblet Irish yews, but very few flowers, provides an area of calm between this and the rill garden with the golden border, facing east and the red border, facing west. An ornamental potager, gravel garden and informal woodland walk with meandering path are other areas of note. Arches, arbours, and vistas abound, ensuring there is something to catch the eye at every turn in this sheltered, secret garden.
