Submit Review

Explore the beautiful Canons Ashby Canons Ashby House, has a formal garden that was created between 1708 and 1717 by Edward Dryden. Derelict and overgrown when the house was rescued by the National Trust, the restoration work of the 1980s has now matured. The garden is divided by stonewalls and yew hedges into courts with terraces and topiary. Mixed rose and herbaceous borders; old fruit varieties including plums, pears and apples; early 18th century timber gates and seats; a fine Cedar of Lebanon, and an 18th century lead statue of a shepherd boy, attributed to Jan Van Nost, in the Green Court make the gardens at Canons Ashby complete.
