WOOLSTONE MILL HOUSE GARDEN
Rambling, romantic Woolstone Mill House Garden, near Faringdon, is a real treat. Close to the hidden village of Woolstone with its pretty pub, The White Horse, it has many delights.
This garden has just the perfect amount of blowsy charm – trim in the right places and charmingly shaggy in others.
A stream trickles through it meandering under several rustic bridges and leading the visitor on to one interesting garden feature after another.
A spectacular circle created by yew hedges whose focal point, two topiary sheep with carved stone heads, is enhanced by a backdrop of real sheep grazing in the meadows beyond.
The wide swath of lawn in this circle is bordered by mixed herbaceous and shrub plantings and provides a splendid photo opportunity.
There are medlars and old-fashioned roses, kitchen and bog gardens and numerous topiary in this two acre property.
Snuggled in among the foliage is every child’s dream of a tree house. It is well worth the climb up as there are terrific views of White Horse Hill with the Uffington White Horse clearly visible.
Sinfully rich home-made meringues with whipped cream and fresh raspberries were served, along with steaming cups of tea, in a picture perfect summerhouse at the end of the garden.
A truly gorgeous garden with many quirky surprises.
