Overview

Cottage garden in a formal setting of lawns and topiary surrounding a 12th-century Manor House.

The garden was originally created by the author Lucy M Boston who based her Green Knowe children's books on both house and garden. The seasons of interest start in January with a mass of snow drops and winter flowering shrubs, followed by the excitement of Spring, the bearded irises, the old roses and then interesting summer annuals take the garden through to the first frosts.

Garden open daily between 11am and 5pm. 
The house is open by appointment to individuals or groups.
