Tour 14 Hampshire

Pelham Place, Newton Valence

The house at Pelham Place was started in 1781, lightly gothicised in 1803 and then acquired its present appearance in 1839. The “finely wooded pleasure grounds” were planted from 1831. Since 1989 terraces were laid and planted to the south of the house and borders planted in the main garden. Beyond lie a summer rose garden and fish pond. A spectacular Liriodendron, planted in 1831 and a three-trunked Davidia dominate the understory of natural hazel in the woodland garden. 

Hambledon House, Hambledon

Over 35 years an entrancing and peaceful oasis with a rich variety of unusual plants and planting combinations has been created in the centre of historic Hambledon. In a largely informal garden, a huge elephant-shaped yew arch divides long double borders of shrubs and perennials for all seasons spilling over the brick pathway. Lawns sloping upwards behind the mellow brick and flint house lead to meandering paths through interesting and attractive planting, while a contemporary note is struck with shaped box, ferns and grasses.
