Sheardown House: Modern Country Garden tour!

Shall we move outside for a moment?
I am an absolute sucker for a mix of sharp Modern topiary, and soft Country planting.


If our garden was free from little children's tricycles, and homemade dens for staying the night outside, and leftover campfires from said adventures, then my dream garden might look something like this gem, designed in conjunction with Taylor Tripp.

Walled Garden


If....if....if.....but I wouldn't give up my life for the world..... 

In fact, we've just got this fab bucket barbecue from Garden Trading so that we can enjoy our outside adventures to the full! It's apparently inspired by fishermen cooking their suppers over a bucket of coals at the beach, hence its name: Whitstable.

Sturdy but light, with a slight industrial touch....the thought of late-at-night sausage suppers has never seemed so cosy.

There's no world without all those wonderful ifs, indeed. But it's lovely to dream for a while. Lovely post,

That would be my dream garden as well, if I had time to spend in the garden! I'm still dreaming mine will look something like that someday.

The gardens are lovely. Wow, what a lot of work though. You would definitely need to keep a gardener on staff.

I do love the freeness of an English garden. Ours in the US are far too rigid and well manicured. I prefer a more wild looking garden.

I was just thinking yesterday that as soon as the weather clears, I'd like to visit Sandwich & Whitstable - I hear they are lovely. Beautiful photos - sounds like the beginnings of a Peter Pan adventure - Lost Boys sitting around a campfire :)
