Our visit to Herefordshire gardens...(2) Stockton Bury Garden.

14 comments


This was a small but very attractive garden, set in about 4 acres. We visited on the last day as it was on our way home. There was a local artist, Lorenzo Gavarini, displaying his paintings in the granary,at the entrance to the gardens. I didn’t get photo’s of his wonderful paintings in acrylic. I can’t get one of them out of my mind since we came home, I wish I had had £400 spare, it would be gracing my lounge wall….lol
Anyway….to the gardens…

The Tythe barn is at the front of the property and is now the restaurant/tea room serving a really nice choice of freshly cooked food and we were able to sit outside in the warm sunshine overlooking the orchard.

There were lots of lovely Japanese Anemones all around the gardens and seeing how pretty they looked enmass made me send for a few more plugs for next year. There were lots of lovely Clematis flowering too. I won’t chat anymore, I will just show you around. Here goes……

At the bottom of the garden we found this little grotto…..


I don’t know how they have packed so much into such a small area. It was a lovely garden and what would I give for that swimming pool????.

How lovely! It's exactly the kind of garden I love HB! The second pic, of the clematis is one of my favourites ..and the grotto. I had to go back because I missed the swimming pool...but yes, it is absolutely stunning! You've really made me want to visit Herefordshire again. I haven't been there since I was about 16! I loved it....so warm and really traditional English county. :))

I loved it, it was chocablock with plants. The weather was perfect and I prefered it to Hampton Court Gardens.
Karen, thankyou for the link. I fell in love with the 'loose moorings' acrylic on canvas,mm.850 x 850. It really called to me...lol. T didn't heed my hints and nudges though. Skin flint!!!

I've saved what I thought was the best, for last. I'm just working on it now. I've really enjoyed being able to visit all the lovely places in Herefordshire.

A beautiful country garden with some lovely touches, Herefordshire is a very nice county...

It is Dd. I'd never been before. It was so lovely and warm nestled in the hills. Really narrow roads and it was a treat to see so many cows and sheep out in the fields....something we don't see many of, around our village nowadays. I do miss seeing the cows.
