Britain in bloom


And just like that, the world stood still. Amid travel bans and isolation orders, the natural world continues in all her beauty. Air pollution in China has plunged, canal water in Venice is clearing and, in Wales, sheep have been spotted enjoying deserted playground roundabouts. The theme of our May newsletter was always intended to be ‘Britain in bloom’, but now it is perhaps more poignant than we ever imagined. This month we honour homes with exceptional gardens; a breath of fresh air delivered straight to your inbox.

The Sculptor´s Gardens

Leominster, Herefordshire


Home to the Twinings Tea family in the 1920s, this luxury country escape oozes vintage fizz. Known for its lively flapper parties, villagers would watch as guests came and went like moths among the topiary gardens and champagne towers. 100 years later, enjoy its latest guise.

Haslemere, Surrey


A utopia of surreal garden sculptures and glass-like pools, Rhapsody has fallen straight down the rabbit hole and landed in the heart of Wonderland. Amidst the sprawling grounds lies an outdoor heated pool, yoga studio and glass reading room floating over the crayfish pond.
