Stancombe Park

There are two parts to the garden, the Folly Garden and the Upper Garden and in order to enter the Grade 1 listed area you have to find your wau through the Menagerie Walk, so called for its collection of rather unruly topiary animals. The garden is full of paths, grottos and tunnels and is truly a magical garden.

Pound Hill
Surrounding the 16th Century cotswold stone country house, the two acre garden is divided into garden rooms. Topiary and box are used throughout to give structure, definition and punctuation and a wealth of well established herbaceous plants are assembled harmoniously to stunning effect in Jeykll style borders.

Alderley Grange
The garden had a lovely atmosphere and a historic feel but perhaps the most stunning part was the lofty lime walk. It was both pleached and arched and led to a wonderfully ornate iron gate through to enclosed garden rooms.

Hodges Barn
The entrance leads to a great walkway of massive flat topped yews lined up to a view of the tower and domed roof of the 15th Century dovecote converted into the house. An enchanting touch was a seat flanked by matching laburnums in a yew alcove.
