Turn End 01

Bring a book, camera or sketchpad and come and enjoy a leisurely early autumn afternoon in the tranquil surroundings of Turn End garden this Saturday, 17th September from 2.00pm to 5.00pm.

Turn End Garden was created by Peter Aldington as a natural extension to the house. It has grown with the buildings, maturing into an internationally renowned garden. A courtyard with a naturalised pool; a small woodland around old apple trees; a curved glade leading to a series of garden rooms — sunken or raised, sunny or shady, geometric or informal — yet all harmonious and unifying irregular geography with the buildings. Turn End garden is a garden whose character changes constantly with the seasons.

The garden and group of three houses is the subject of a book 'A Garden and Three Houses ' in which the late Sir Peter Shepherd commented 'I know of no other garden which packs such riches into so small a space with such interesting and beautiful plants.' The book was reprinted in 2010.

Come and enjoy Teas and homemade cakes. Artist in Residence, Heather Hunter, will be opening her studio exhibiting books and prints. A small selection of plants and the publication 'A Garden and Three Houses' will be available for purchase. We can accept payment by cash or cheque on the day, or in advance by bank transfer.

Adults: £4; Children free. No booking required
