South Newington Gardens private tour: all year round

Please take the opportunity to visit two varied gardens in South Newington, each of which offers at least 30 minutes of interest.

Each garden presents a rich palette of colour and form, created through design and planting. Herbaceous borders offer year-round interest and havens for a range of wildlife. The gardens have formal box hedge parterres and orchards with fruit trees. There are water features, as well as beehives in both locations. The kitchen gardens are managed on a rotation method and with companion planting. Where possible, the gardens are maintained organically.

"Each garden has so many different areas of interest and the delicious slice of freshly made lemon drizzle cake and cream with a pot of tea in the sunshine made for a perfect afternoon. Thank you so much." Annie Morris
