Veddw House Garden

An older house with a 1990s garden. Veddw has a woodland garden, a meadow and a series of features and compartments: a mahonia garden, a grey border, a wild garden, a cotoneaster walk, a magnolia walk, reflecting pool, ornamental vegetable garden and a fish garden. The woodland garden has plaques, poems and a lizard on the trees in the wood.

Head Gardener's Comment

"Only rarely does one come across a garden so ambitious and successful as the one at Veddw House ……this garden combines all the achievements of a great garden - excellent relationships between house and garden and between the garden and its surroundings, a satisfying blend of formality and informality and of wildness and control, good use of colour and texture, and a distinct personality."

Stephen Anderton, "The Times"
Starred in Good Garden Guide and an RHS Recommended Garden.
