Owlpen Manor Garden

A Tudor house (1450-1616) in a wooded valley with an Arts and Crafts garden. The grass terraces and hedges are believed to date from the 1720s. Vita Sackville West exclaimed 'Owlpen - ah! what a dream is there'. Jekyll and Weaver wrote that 'Among the notable examples of little hillside gardens treated in formal fashion, none is more delightful than that of Owlpen'.
