An influential seven-acre garden, created in the 1960s by plantswoman, Chelsea gold medal-winning designer and author 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-tolerant plants, a lush water garden and a woodland garden for shade-lovers.
