Charingworth Court – Open Garden
Artistically and lovingly created, Charingworth Court is a 1½ acre garden surrounding a restored Georgian/Tudor house (not open). A wonderful opportunity to explore this beautiful garden on 22 & 23 May, 12pm – 6pm.
Relaxed country style with Japanese influences, large pond and walled vegetable/flower garden, created over 25 years from a blank canvas. Mature copper beech trees, Cedar of Lebanon and Wellingtonia; and younger trees replacing an earlier excess of Cupressus leylandii.
A trip to Japan led to the creation of a large pond in front of the house. “Once we had a London allotment; now we have a walled vegetable and flower garden which helps feed us and provide flowers for cutting. In June, we have roses, clematis, lavender and cistus to give colour and attract bees. We are almost totally organic with plenty of wildlife in every part of the garden.”
Features and Attractions
Once again the garden will showcase a range of sculpture, most for sale with a percentage going to NGS charities.
The garden is open as part of the National Garden Scheme which has over 3,500 breathtaking private gardens opening for charity – find yourself a fantastic day out.
