We will start the day with a garden tour led by
Head Gardener Colin Durber.
Ozleworth Park was purchased by Mr and Mrs
Michael Stone in 1990 and since that time they
have undertaken a complete reconstruction of the
This magnificent garden boasts a parterre with
roses planted against a backdrop of mature yew
and seedling box; a long mixed border at the
end of which is the rill garden heavily planted with
hostas, euphorbia, irises, astilbes, ferns and other
moisture loving plants.
The shrub rose garden is enclosed by very fine
mature Irish yews and beyond the rose garden
there are lily ponds, a place of quiet contemplation.
The walled garden has herbaceous borders
backed with a random mix of copper and green
beech and an orchard comprising pears, apples,
cherries, quince and mulberries. The greenhouses
have three separate temperature regions and
beyond them lies the herb garden. The picture is
completed by the Water Garden, with five
cascading formal ponds each linked by a small rill.
Lunch will be served in the barn, after which guests
can take time to revisit their favourite areas.
