The Garden Landscape Guide

Ditchley Park

Not open to the public. Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe designed one of the last Italian gardens in England at Ditchley Park. The knot/parterre has gone but the rest of the garden survives in good condition. Jellicoe reinstated the terrace, which Gibbs designed and made a pool with fountains. Statues were brought from Wrest Park.

    There is something very gracious, elegant and classical about these gardens that makes one want to go back as often as is permitted.
    The views from the lawns across the lake and distant views, the formal garden to the southwest of the house and its pond and views stretching off to the all works and very well. Great design. I love it
