The hopelessly beautiful Eastleach House garden

21 June 2012


Yesterday I took the grandparents and kids along to Eastleach House open gardens, which is down the road, past the church and up the hill from my allotment. The garden or house cannot be seen from the road which makes it all the more surprising when you discover it’s hidden splendour. It is the most utterly beautiful example of a english country garden with small interconnecting rooms of the most tasteful colour schemes and garden design. The thing I really love about it is that tasteful weeds and self seeders are allowed to do their thing below the copious amount of clipped yew and box. My kids loved the rill which I hooked them out of, and the springy lawn where they could do their gymnastics routine for the audience of ladies and gents scoffing cream teas.

Can you improve on perfection? well I would of liked to of seen more veg and fruit being grown amongst this garden which in my opinion would make it all the more perfect…..oh and perhaps a few peacocks or ducks strutting around on the lawn.
