Sheringham Hall was designed by Humphry Repton by in 1812. The new garden at Sheringham is designed partly by Arabella Lennox-Boyd. The walled gardens are divided by an apple tunnel under-planted with Hebe and lavender. The lower part is an immaculate vegetable garden, while the upper, based around a spectacular central pavilion, is decorative, with perimeter walks guarded by yew pyramids and standard Prunus salicifolia.
The Dutch style of the 1699 house is echoed in the formal layout of the garden. Clipped beech and evergreen oak hedges divide the sloping site into rooms along a central vista running the length of the garden. Two canals are overlooked by a pavilion based on the original at Westbury Court. The last section of the garden is a working kitchen garden.
Blott Kerr-Wilson has been described as “the most innovative shell artist working today”. She now works not only on decorative commissions creating wonderful shell houses and grottoes for private clients across the world, but also creating decorative objects; obelisks and pots with shells.
