Garden Visit to Buckinghamshire
July 11 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm£49
[Departure from Stanborough Green, Welwyn Garden City at 9.30am]
Our first visit will be Hillesden House, the home of Mr and Mrs Faccenda. With five acres of formal gardens and eighty acres of deer park, there is room for carp lakes, fountains and waterfalls, in addition to rose, alpine and herbaceous borders. Coffee/Tea will be taken on arrival. After lunch at The Old Thatched Inn at Adstock, we shall move on to Kingsbridge Farm at Steeple Claydon, belonging to Mr and Mrs Aldous. The house sits low and mellow under a warm tiled roof. The largely informal garden created by Serena Aldous mirrors the house. The lawn is enclosed by softly curving borders; winding paths, interestingly planked, lead into a woodland garden on either side of a small stream, crossed by a variety of bridges. The central vista across the main lawn leads out across a ha ha into the countryside. We shall have tea and cakes in the garden before leaving for home.
Reservations for a place on this garden visit should be made to Mrs Sonja Fillingham using this form.
