I was in England with a cousin visiting various gardens (e.g. Hestercombe, Durslade Farm, Hidcote) and this was our last stop. It was amazing! Lovely to see it and learn about the history. There weren't many people there so we had a lovely afternoon wandering...More
So much to see at this delightful garden. Remember this is a private house and garden and the owners should be respected for their rules. It was great to spend a quiet summers afternoon without the crowds you see at other locations. Don't take the...More
