About

Woolton House is a stunning Grade II listed 18th century country house.

In the four-acre garden, the current owners started with a completely clean slate and sought the advice of the French designer Pascal Cribier, whose work includes the Tuileries Garden in Paris.

Cribier designed the magnificent contemporary potager in the walled garden. There is also a Chinese cutting garden in hot colours.

The Rose garden, surrounding a cleverly enlarged formal pool, is a collaboration between the Browns and Cribier. Aralias give height and structure and Rosa chinensis ‘Sanguinea’, a hard-to-find sibling of ‘Mutabilis’, droops over the waters edge.

A spectacular oak stands on an expansive lawn beside the house. Beyond in the woodland, Sculptor Andy Goldsworthy has created a large mound in a clearing. This is a garden of great style, maintained with great care and gardened with enthusiasm and panache.

After your tour, a light lunch will be served.
