The Garden Landscape Guide

Wayford Manor

The garden at Wayford Manor was designed by Harold Peto in 1902 and surrounds a manor house. There are terraces, pools and topiary, partly on the site of an Elizabethan garden. It is a good example of the Arts and Crafts style with a transition from a terrace in front of the house to an 'informal' wild garden.  The manor is well maintained and well planted.  A rock garden was added in the 1930s and there are several pools with lush planting in the lower part of the garden.

    This is a well-paced garden alternating between open spaces and enclosed ones. Many classic elements relaxed plantings/clipped lawns,mature trees a magnificent huge Magnolia x soulangeana and a touch of the italiante make this garden a joy to experience.
