More about 41 Southbrook Road
This large South East London garden has been lovingly developed over 14 years into a corner of Eden!. It has a formal layout, wide mixed herbaceous borders packed full of colour and interest. The garden is surrounded by mature trees, framing sunny lawns, a central box parterre and an Indian pergola. The ancient pear trees, survivors of the orchards which once surrounded the Manor House, are festooned in June with clouds of white 'Kiftsgate' and 'Rambling Rector' roses. You can spot fishes and damsel flies in the two lily ponds framed by cypress trees and and discover many places to sit, including a small classical garden building, the perfect spot to relax and enjoy home-made tea and cakes.
