Description of Garden

This charming seven acre garden was planted in the 1950s to compliment the stylish Georgian house until a period of neglect led to the gardens decline. From 2013, an army of volunteers, aptly named Burford House Garden Angels, have been working hard to restore the 4 acre gardens. The fluid design of the gardens are enhanced by interesting shrubs and trees, imaginatively used and comprehensively labelled. There are fabulous roses and naturalised herbaceous displays and pleasing areas of water gardens for moisture loving plants. But Burford means Clematis - over 350 varieties - cleverly trained, grown and displayed among shrubs - In summer there may be as many as 50 varieties in flower at one time.

There are a vast number of other varieties of plants, including one of the garden's great wonders, the giant Wisteria macrobotrys 'Burford', which in May cascades spectacularly down the back of the house. Planted originally in 1960, it fills the air with divine perfume, and the racemes hang sometimes two feet in length.

The Georgian turfed bridge spans the Ledwyche Brook and takes you to the arboretum and the large areas of wildflower meadow.
