Brilliant for hide and seek, Pooh-sticks and young explorers. Water garden, 20 paths, vistas and views galore. Snowdrops in February. Exceptional camellias and magnolia in the spring.

    A half-acre London walled town garden behind a handsome Victorian house c.1830, splendidly designed by the owner's parents who from 1951 had no wish for a gardener or a strictly formal garden. Tunnels, arbours and screens abound. A series of nineteenth-century brick-built arches across the width of the garden separates it into two compartments. The area near the house has the lawn with its diversity of trees and plants around it, the area beyond keeps the green and yellow motif but it's all somewhat wilder. Secret paths and unexpected views make this a magical place for children. Much use is made of evergreens and there are some exquisite shrubs, including a row of camellias down the north-facing wall (built in 1600) interrupted by a huge Hydrangea petiolaris. There are many species, for example five varieties of box and even more of ivies. The water garden, enhanced by irises and alchemilla mollis, breaks the silence with the sound of water and children playing Pooh-sticks. It is a garden of shades of green and yellow, with rubus introduced for contrast.
