Veddw House Garden, Gardens Devauden, Monmouthshire - Wales where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


Veddw House Devauden Monmouthshire Wales
The garden is set in the wonderful countryside of the Welsh border above Tintern. There are two acres of ornamental garden and two acres of woodland. A notable recent addition to the garden is the dramatic reflecting pool, but many people's favourite parts will still be the ornamental vegetable plot (getting more ornamental and less vegetable every year..) with its rose border, brick paths, standard roses and clematis, or the flower filled gardens and borders. I have a great interest in the local landscape history and have incorporated this interest into the garden design, in particular in a large parterre of grasses in a pattern of box hedges based on the local Tithe Map of 1842. Elsewhere, slightly mischievous thoughts about what the overused terms 'wild' and 'natural' mean have been an influence in the Cornfield Garden, where cornfield weeds and corn are grown in formal beds. The garden is starred in the Good Gardens Guide, and featured in the BBC Gardener's World Garden Lover's Guide to Britain and the RHS Garden Finder. See also the book "Gardens of Illusion" by Sara Maitland and Peter Matthews. From here you can explore the garden through a written garden guide with pictures and a plan of the garden.
