More about Conderton Manor
Conderton Manor was built in the 1680s, but the garden today dates from the 1960s, when it was extended to its present seven acres. The garden was landscaped to maximise the glorious views towards the Cotswolds and down the Vale of Gloucester. The main features of the garden are: Formal Terrace with clipped box parterre, planted with foliage and texture plants.. The Old Kitchen Garden now has huge arches covered in roses, vitis, clematis; the wall has been planted with climbing roses and late-flowering clematis; newly planted rose borders with geraniums and hemerocallis; and a lavender walk, with three varieties of lavender, paeonies and aquilegias. The Quarry Garden was created under a massive weeping willow and there are plants for winter stem colour – willows and cornus – masses of spectacular primulas in spring.. By the tennis court are spectacular 50 year old tree paeonies in May.. Over years many unusual trees have been planted in the garden and adjoining orchard and this now makes a very special small arboretum. This is a garden to visit all year round with particular highlights in spring for the daffodils and flowering cherries. October/November for glorious leaf and berry colour. A must to visit for tree lovers at all seasons.
