The Courts

Posted on: December 4th, 2011 by Rob

From 1920 Lady Cecilie Goff, influenced by Gertrude Jekyll and Lawrence Johnston, created delightfully vibrant formal gardens divided by yew hedges, shrub borders and raised terraces.

An example of the English style at its best, the garden is full of charm and variety. There are many interesting plants and an imaginative use of colour, with surrounding topiary, ornaments and water features. The garden is complemented by an arboretum with natural planting of spring bulbs, a kitchen garden and orchard.

The Hidcote-style garden is packed with many interesting plants and imaginative colour schemes. Features include a conservatory, lily pond, mixed borders and pleached limes. The arboretum contains fine specimen trees under-planted with spring bulbs.
