The Manor House, Upton Grey

A stunning garden restored using the original plans and plant lists of Gertrude Jekyll.

South-east of the house is the Formal Garden framed by yew hedging. A pergola covered with roses, aristolochia, jasmine and virginia creeper leads down to the Rose Garden.

Geometric in design, the Rose Garden is planted with peonies, roses and lilies. In late summer, the herbaceous borders are filled with hollyhocks, delphinium, phlox, poppies and campanula followed by dahlias and helianthus.

On the other side of the house is the Wild Garden. Planted with rambling roses, bamboo and walnut, grass paths lead to the pond.

The gardens are open most days of the week from May until July – check the website for details.

The house is still home to the Wallingers.
