Cottage Garden

Divided into old and new, the Cottage Garden is comprised of two distinctive planting styles. Inspired by the vibrant colours of Tibetan silks, the New Cottage Garden has an exuberant yellow, pink and blue theme.

The Old Cottage Garden, meanwhile, is of classic English quintessence with a planting scheme designed by The Prince and the late Rosemary Verey OBE. A mixture of trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants and bulbs provide year-round colour, while the oak summer house, designed by the Prince and Mark Hoare, offers structural interest and reams of charm.
