Visit: Iford Manor and Gardens
- Iford Manor |
Iford Manor, near Bradford-on-Avon, has one of the most delightful Italian-style gardens in England. It was the home of Harold Ainsworth Peto and the gardens were his creation. He was a trained architect whose style was rooted in Renaissance Italy and an exact contemporary of Gertrude Jekyll, who was a great admirer of his work. The 18th century house, now the home of Elizabeth Cartwright-Hignett, houses her collection of paintings and works of art and she herself will give a tour. It will also be possible to view the walled garden not normally open to the public.
