An influential seven-acre garden, designed in the 1960s by Beth Chatto. Situated in a hollow that combines extremes of wet and dry, it's based on the principle of finding the right plant for the right place. It includes a gravel garden for drought-loving plants, a lush water garden and a woodland garden for shade-lovers.
