Tintinhull Garden

The garden is laid out into areas separated by walls and hedges.

The garden layout was developed in the early 20th century, by Dr. Price, including laying down triangular and diamond shaped flagstone paths. The ornamental domes of box were planted in the 1920s.[9] The early landscaping was expanded and planted starting in 1933 by Phyllis Reiss in a Arts and CraftsHidcote” style.[3] The 1.5 acres (0.61 ha) garden is separated into “rooms” by Yew hedges and walls.[10] The different areas include Eagle Court (the former courtyard), Middle Garden, Fountain Garden and Pool Garden.[3] The pool garden is the site of a former tennis court.[9]

In 1954 Reiss gave the house and garden to the National Trust, but continued to live in the house and care for the garden until her death in 1961. From then on, the Trust let the house to a variety of tenants, including the garden designer and writer Penelope Hobhouse and her husband Prof John Malins from 1980 to 1993.[11]

The gardens are included in the National Register of Historic Parks and Gardens and include small pools and an azelea garden.[12]

    You English are known for your gardens, of course, Cherry, but seeing all that lavender makes it even more spectacular.

    The lavender is just amazing, Cherry. I wonder if it smelled. What a wonderful garden and I think this will be a joy to work here and to be here.

      We had not heard of the garden before our impromptu visit. We were not dissapointed, it is a lovely garden.

      I have no sense of smell so I am not able to advise if the lavender was aromatic.

    Lovely isn’t it. And you must have picked the perfect time to see it, not a photobomber in sight. When we went it was heaving!
