Stonor Park & Gardens
Nestled in a Chiltern valley Stonor has been a family home for over 850 years. The Walls of the Great Garden and Orchard date back to 1480, within the walled garden you will find a terraced Italianate Pleasure garden filled with box and yew, peonies and two lily ponds. Wander westwards to discover the old Kitchen Garden created in the 1700s, now showing stunning borders of herbaceous perennials and avenues of Irish yews. April sees the arrival of Fritillaries, ornamental cherries and fruit tree blossom, closely followed by Iris, tulips, wisteria, alliums, camassias and laburnum. By June rose arches and climbing roses at the front of the house are in full bloom, including Peonies, lavenders, water lilies and salvias.
Agapanthus, Echinacea, Japanese anemones, sedums and asters show their stunning colours as we gently glide into autumn. Many of the ancient trees and copper beech in the park and on the lawns flourish into early November.
