The Garden Landscape Guide

Broughton Grange

Chelsea Gold Medal winner Tom Stuart-Smith designed the walled garden in 2001, which is enclosed by clipped trees. There are three terraces and a rill leading to a central stone tank. Broughton Grange also has a knot garden, wildflower meadow and arboretum. If you zoom in on the map below, some of the layout of the garden is visible on the satellite image.

    A garden which is an absolute delight. A surprise at almost every turn. The vision which has gone in to the overall design is very special. Loved the 'infant arboretum' it will be a real gem in years to come. All topped off with a cream tea by the pool.

    Whoever owns this place is investing a most formidable amount of money in the gardens and new Arboretum.
    The 'sexy' area is Tom Stuart-Smith's walled garden. However there are also many other parts that have as much if not more charm-the Knot Garden,Parterre and Long Garden, not to mention the Peat block garden and the other new developments nearby.
    It is exciting to find a garden that is so strongly plant orientated..a plethora of rare trees and shrubs are being collected.
    I reckon this place will be, if it isnt already a most noteworthy garden in the UK.
