Description

Nestling in a woodland corner of Hampshire is the ravishingly attractive 1720s manor house, where busts of gods, emperors and dukes look down from the walls onto two major gardens. The inner gardens, enclosed by eighteenth century walls, are all devoted to parterres. One is filled with water lilies, another of classical design with box topiary and a third enacts the whimsy of Alice in Wonderland with the storys characters in ivy and box topiary surrounded by roses of red and white. The main walled garden is planted in subtle hues of mauve, plum and blue, contained in beds that have been faithfully restored to their original outlines. A decorative potager is centred around berry-filled fruit cages where herbs, flowers and unusual vegetables are designed into colourful patterns. All this is surrounded by a second garden, a remarkable new-classical park studded with follies, birdcages and monuments, a paradise water garden, a red peony dragon garden and the recently designed garden of the five bridges.
Opening times 2010 from Easter Saturday 3 April until Sunday 19 September on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 11am 4.30pm
Groups welcome by appointment any day except Wednesdays and Saturdays from 3 April until 19 September.

We try not to take ourselves too seriously, we think omega replica sale that fun and humor has a place in the luxury world, and we really dislike pretentiousness. More so, we feel it is rolex replica uk important to be super transparent with our audience C a concept that, in many ways, is the anathema of the luxury industry. On top of that, we really dislike the idea of telling our breitling replica sale audience what to do. Myself and the team aren't people that like being told what to do (let's say that at least one rolex replica thing aBlogtoWatch staffers share in common is a disdain for traditional authority), rolex replica sale and we don't want to tell our audience what to do. We respect you and our mission is to educate and inform.
