Bretforton Manor in October

This is a rare garden, a serene place to wander at will, to linger as hidden delights unfold at each turn with woodland, lake, a waterfall fed with rainwater, avenues and a beautifully restored walled garden that blends the old with contemporary touches. In three late flowering herbaceous borders, autumn brings a peak of herbaceous colour — asters, sedums, coneflowers, dahlias, salvias, eupatorium, penstemon and ornamental grasses — peppered with box balls, and separated by pleached hornbeam screens and yew hedging. Near a seating area beneath a pergola, hot coloured beds are filled with exotic plants. There are also intriguing listed buildings such as a cider barn, aviary, dovecote and rare apiary.
