This is an immaculate 2-acre garden, designed by Michael Balston and updated by the present owners, Mark and Tricia Alsop over the past ten years.

The garden is divided into different areas with steps and flower borders, surrounded by yew hedging. Through an archway there is a long border and gravel garden surrounding the tennis court, a formal vegetable garden with box parterres and a relaxed, meadow area with mown walkways and drifts of Spring bulbs. There is also a mound allowing access to spectacular views of the countryside.

The garden has been designed to sit comfortably in its downland surroundings with formal areas towards the house opening out to more informal planting beyond.

It is about 50 minutes’ drive from Freshford in an area of delightful villages.

There is no WC but a comfort stop may be found nearby at Plank’s Farm, The Old Potato Yard, Lydeway, SN10 3PU.

£10 per person (to include refreshments). Everyone welcome.
