Stratfield Saye Garden

The estate was a gift to the Duke of Wellington's from a grateful nation. It has a Victorian garden with a collection of trees, an American garden, a summerhouse, a camellia house, a herbaceous border and a rose garden. Loudon, in 1833, remarked that 'we expected the surface of the grounds to be flat, but were agreeably surprised to find a gentle hollow running through them in the direction of the length of the park [which is] as well wooded as could be desired'. He also saw 'the charger which the duke rode at waterloo [for] 15 hours, without once dismounting, and it has never been ridden since that day'.
