Tour 12 Wiltshire

Urchfont Manor, Urchfont

Urchfont Manor is a mellow William and Mary house. In front of the house, the formality is reflected in a round-ended pool, designed by Paul Gaserwitz. A contemporary parterre of lavender and box is surrounded by yew hedges and cloud-clipped box. Beyond are maze-like curved beech hedges, which contrast with plantings of Irish yews and Prunus ‘Tai-Haku’. 

Redenham Park, Andover

The garden sits discreetly behind the house and is, in high summer, an abundance of roses and perennials. The rose garden is planted in pink and white with a foam of Alchemilla in the paving. An arch, covered with Paul’s Himalayan Musk, leads through to the main late-summer borders. Beyond lie a series of gardens with espaliered pears and apples and a mass of scented roses, culminating in the immaculate kitchen garden.

Wudston House, Wedhampton

The remarkable house and garden are less than 12 years old. By the house a hornbeam tunnel separates a vegetable garden from a sunken garden, filled with late-flowering perennials. The double borders which, with hornbeam pyramids, frame the main lawn, are filled with unusual perennials and shrubs. Where the garden merges into parkland a large, semi-circular, perennial meadow has been created.
