Veddw House Garden
A starred garden in The Good Garden Guide, Veddw has been admired by many over the years for its rich detail, idiosyncratic style and luscious setting.
The garden is set in the wonderful countryside of the Welsh border above Tintern. There are two acres of ornamental garden and two acres of woodland. A notable addition to the garden is the dramatic reflecting pool.
The local landscape of rolling hills is reflected in the sinuous hedges that lead to the pool and provide the perfect backdrop for other planting schemes.
Anne has a great interest in the history of the local landscape and has incorporated this into the garden design, in particular a large parterre of grasses in a pattern of box hedges based on the local Tithe Map of 1842.
"Only rarely does one come across a garden so ambitious and successful as the one at Veddw House." Stephen Anderton, The Times
"My favourite NGS gardens include the Charles Jenks Garden of Cosmic Speculation and the Yew Wave garden at Veddw House in Wales."
Jane Owen, Financial Times, 22nd March 2008
