The Garden Guide

Lyme Park

An essentially eighteenth century house with a nineteenth century 15 acre garden and a 1,359 acre deer park. The design of the garden is in the High Victorian Mixed Style. It has an orangery, elaborate bedding displays, a 'Dutch' garden (described as an 'Italian' garden when it was made but not Dutch or Italian in character). There is also a woodland garden in a ravine, a lake, a lime avenue and a herbaceous border designed by Graham Stuart Thomas for the National Trust. The videos show an aerial view of Lyme Park and its last owners enjoying the garden in the Roaring Twenties
