Englefield House Garden, near Reading
The formal garden at Englefield House was laid out in the 17th century and the terraces and stone staircases were built in 1860.
Englefield House Garden - This garden must be one of the best kept secrets in Southern England and is one you should definitely put in your diary. It was originally created 400 years ago and since then there have been further additions.
At the time of our visit in late June the roses, especially the white varieties, were looking stunning, not only in the formal gardens but in other parts of the property too. There are also very well kept herbaceous borders with plenty of colour to take you through the seasons.
There is a small garden especially created for children where four little statues conceal hidden jets of water.
The woodland and water garden on the hill above the house was designed and planted in 1936 and is really beautiful with some stunning trees in the woodland areas. This part is really good for wildlife with birdsong, butterflies and deer!
The walled kitchen garden is planted with fruit trees, a large selection of vegetables, herbs, salads, roses, lavender and sweetpeas, but is not always open to the public.
2018 - Englefield House - The garden is open at various times throughout the year. Most of garden accessible by wheelchair.
