The Original Garden Visitor's Guide

Brobury House Gardens

Welcome to Brobury House Gardens, eight acres set against a backdrop of rolling hills on a beautiful section of the River Wye. The combination of Victorian terraces with mature specimen trees, inspiring water features, architectural planting and woodland areas are a delight.

Keith and Pru Cartwright arrived in 2001. Together with their garden designer, Peter Antonius, redesign and redevelopment has taken place, while still retaining the best of the original features.

In spring the 50,000+ new bulbs herald a new season and the stand of Jacquemontii birches shine. In summer the bog garden with its walkway curving round wafting Norfolk reeds leads you down a stream past ponds and woodland planting to the water meadow; in herbaceous borders a splendid display of delphiniums dominate; a pergola smothered in white wisteria leads to a granite monolith and hidden grass garden. By autumn the aster bed comes into its own as do the acers, maples, parrotia, euonymus and cornus to make the whole garden glow.
