Elton Hall and Garden, near Peterborough
Elton Hall Gardens have been stunningly restored during the last twenty years.
Elton Hall Garden has been stunningly restored during the last twenty years. The house dates from the late 15th century. The grounds have evolved from a simple medieval garden, a more formal 17th century garden and 'a picturesque' 18th century parkland; to formality in the late 19th century.
The present layout is based on the Edwardian design of paths and lawns. Immaculately kept hedges of hornbeam and yew encompass four different areas, including the enchanting sunken lily pond surrounded with beds containing a number of specimen plants. The Edwardian rose garden has recently been transformed into a stunning herbaceous garden with a wisteria walk and new fountain by Giles Rayner. The Millennium was celebrated by building an orangery which is set in a colourful Mediterranean garden with lemon and orange trees. A small shrubbery area, with such gems as Paulownia Tomentosa, leads the visitor back into the Box Walk to enjoy another view of the house.
