Tour 1 Wiltshire

Knoyle Place, East Knoyle

Knoyle Place lies in the shelter of a south-facing slope, which becomes a woodland garden, in spring filled with acid-loving Magnolias and Rhododendrons, thick with bluebells. The south façade of the house supports a huge Magnolia grandiflora and a stone terrace lies beside the older wing of the house softened by swathes of perennials.

Lower Lye, East Knoyle

The garden at Lower Lye gradually reveals itself, one delight after another. An arch in a beech hedge leads into an enclosed white garden. Hedges and perennial borders surround a Liquidambar. The main lawn has a spectacular view towards Stourhead and King Alfred’s Tower.

Fonthill House, Fonthill Bishop

Tania Compton has redesigned the formal garden around FonthillHouse, with interconnected spaces leading towards a fountain set in a circularenclosure. Above the house, a relatively new woodland garden, filled with spring-floweringshrubs, has been planted under the guidance of Chelsea gold medal designer,Marie-Louise Agius.
