Description of Garden

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.

The garden was made by Anne Wareham and Charles Hawes. Charles photographed Discovering Welsh Gardens and Anne's book The Bad Tempered Gardener was published in May 2011

Veddw House Garden is starred in The Good Garden Guide. It was an RHS recommended garden, but withdrew from the scheme because it was too expensive for the garden owners.

History Of Garden

The garden has been created over the past 25 years out of two fields. It surrounds a 200-year-old cottage. Designer Anne Wareham is described as one of the 30 most influential gardeners in the UK by the Daily Telegraph.
