Great Fosters Garden
Framed on three sides by a Saxon moat, the formal gardens of Great Fosters are both extensive and exceptional.
The gardens at Great Fosters were originally designed by W H Romaine Walker and Gilbert Jenkins and are among the finest Arts and Crafts gardens in Europe.
Designed to reflect the intricate beauty of a Persian rug, the knot garden is embellished with fragrant beds of flowers and herbs bordered by manicured hedges and topiary. At the heart of it all is the Drake sundial and is believed to date back to 1585. Rising beyond the gardens, the majestic tiered steps of an amphitheatre have been carved into the hillside.
More to see with a vast lake, a grand lawn leading to an avenue of lime trees, and an enchanting Wisteria-draped Japanese bridge leading to a sunken rose garden and tranquil lily pond.
