The Folly or Summer House was built to a sketch by Capability Brown in about 1760. Originally built as a bath house for Lord Clanricarde it sits on a tributary of the lovely River Meon and is the only surviving remains of a much grander scheme which was demolished in 1958. The folly has now been exquisitely restored to its original Georgian appearance by current owner William Thuillier who will give a group tour of the house and garden - itself extensively replanted with trees, shrubs and roses and topiary hedge that might have featured in the landscape two centuries ago.
