The Garden Guide

Graythwaite Hall Garden

An extensively changed Tudor house with one of Thomas Mawson's earliest large garden designs and therefore one of the first to be classified as 'arts and crafts'. The sundial, designed by Dan Gibson, was used on the covers of the third to fifth editions of The Art and Craft of Garden Making and Graythwaite is a key example of his work. The plan is from the first edition of the book.  The Arts and Crafts Style can be seen in the rose garden, the Dutch garden, the yew hedges and the terraces. The garden, which is well-designed and a pleasure to visit, is also one of the best surviving examples of the many gardens he designed.
