Uniquely autobiographical, this remarkable garden has been created over the last 47 years by Sir Roy Strong CH and his late wife Julia
Trevelyan Oman CBE. It was created in 1974 from a bare four-acre field in the idyllic countryside of Herefordshire. We can see why visitors flock here and it’s not just for the exclusive gift shop! Fruit blossom and fruit laden branches dazzle you in The Christmas Orchard. Colours delight in the Queen’s Silver Jubilee Garden where a sundial takes centre stage. Scent sedates the air in the repeat flowering Rose Garden. Nature heals you along Julia’s walk, a wild flower meadow with lavish planting and a pond that’s a haven for wildlife. And, Majestic views of the countryside and garden can be captured from The Howdah Court. There is much to see and inspire, we could go on and on.
