An amazing 5 acre garden in Malmesbury's beautiful and historic town centre. Its creation is the first of many surprises. Growing here there are over 2000 different roses - the largest private collection in the country - 2000 herbs and 2000 other plant species, all laid out personally by a tenacious and visionary owner and his gardener with sympathy to the site's rich history. Against the stunning backdrop of Malmesbury Abbey, set around a sixteenth century house, discover formal gardens, a 'Celtic cross' knot garden, herbaceous borders, a 'mediaeval' herb garden encircled by fruit cordons, foliage and bog gardens. Wooded walks to river and monastic fish ponds with kingfisher and swans have lovely views along the way.
