103   Brackenhurst

 

Heritage house sits amongst a beautiful garden

Open Saturday 4th-Sunday 5th May

This 91 year old homestead with its surrounding garden of old tree, camellias and roses is entered along a roadway lined with oaks, ashes and other deciduous trees. A driveway lined with Poplars and Seduction roses leads to sweeping lawns that extend into the magnificent countryside.

A fire swept through Bridgetown in 2009 and one third of the Brackenhurst garden was lost to the fire. A major replanting of hundreds of oak and other deciduous trees and roses was undertaken to replace those destroyed by fire. The gardens have one of the largest collections of roses in the South West. All the damaged rose trellises were replaced and a new structure was built especially for Alister Clark climbers. This is a magnificent garden over a large area.
