George Carter was described by the Sunday Times as “one of the best garden designers in Britain". This visit is to his own garden. There is an 1830s farmyard and formal gardens in 2 acres. Inspired by C17 formal gardens, the site consists of a series of interconnecting rooms with framed views and vistas designed in a simple palette of evergreens and deciduous trees and shrubs such as were available in that period. Homemade teas provided.
