A Tudor/Georgian house with a fine twentieth century garden. It nestles in the valley of the River Frome.
The Peto garden belonged to the Arts and Crafts designer Harold Peto, from 1899 to 1933, and shows his love of Italy. It has a cloister garden of Pompeian scale, terraces, columnar cypresses and Peto's vast collection of statues, urns, sarcophagi and terracotta.
The Peto Garden at Iford Manor was designed by the Edwardian architect Harold Peto, who lived at Iford from 1899 until his death in 1933. The romantic Italianate garden is characterised by pools, colonnades and terraces, but receiving influence from many gardening styles from around the world.
Particularly of note are the stunning displays of Wisteria Sinensis in mid-late May.
