Explore a beautiful Arts and Crafts Garden at Hidcote
Twisting lanes of the Cotswold countryside lead to Hidcote Manor Garden, one of the most inventive and influential gardens of the 20th century. Its structure of outdoor `rooms´, linked by vistas and furnished with all sorts of topiary, recalls both the English garden style and the European connections of its creator Major Lawrence Johnston. Laid out over seventy years ago, an astonishing variety of effects have been created. Hedges, walls, water and paving were all combined to create a garden that has its originals in the Arts and Crafts movement. Profuse and `jungly´ planting, rich colour and texture, contrast with areas left deliberately plain to give calm and restful interludes.
