The Garden Guide

Broadlands Garden

A Palladian house in a serpentine park, home to Lord Palmerston in the eighteenth century and to Lord Mountbatten in the twentieth century. The park was designed by Lancelot Brown, as were some parts of the house. Dorothy Stroud writes (p138) that 'In addition to new lawns and plantations, Brown must have have been responsible for alterations at this time to an earlier orangery'. The view of the house across the River Test to the house is an eighteenth century classic.
