The Laskett Gardens is uniquely autobiographical

The Laskett Gardens is one of the largest private formal gardens to be laid out in England since 1945, the gardens form an ever evolving creation over forty years of the historian, writer and diarist Sir Roy Strong and his late wife, the designer, Julia Trevelyan Oman.

Their four acres celebrate an orchestration of surprise and thrilling vistas. There are some twenty different and contrasting ‘rooms’ including a rose garden, a knot garden, an orchard, a pleached lime avenue, parterres, herbaceous borders and the Colonnade Court.

New additions in the garden are two stunning mosaics in the orchard and a Belvedere tower from which to view the garden on high – not to be missed.

This garden is a unique portrait of its makers, with the story of their marriage and their extraordinary lives woven into its very fabric.
