Chastleton House Garden

A fine Jacobean house (1612) in Cotswold stone, overlooking a valley. The garden has features from several periods: (1) an astronomical garden, which is analysed by Roy Strong in his book on The Renaissance Garden in England (2) a lake with an island, a Chinese bridge and a pagoda, (3) a herbaceous border planted according to Gertrude Jekyll's 'JMW Turner' colour scheme (4) a croquet lawn: the rules of croquet were codified at Chastleton.
