The Garden Landscape Guide

Mottistone Manor Garden

A medieval/Elizabethan manor house in a wooded valley with views of the English Channel. The terraced garden has herbaceous borders.


Set in a sheltered valley this magical garden is full of surprises, with shrub filled banks, hidden pathways and colourful herbaceous borders. Surrounding an attractive Elizabethan manor house, this 20th century garden is experimenting with a Mediterranean-style planting scheme to take advantage of its southerly location.
