Jane and I visited the garden at West Green House today, near Hook in Hampshire. It wasn’t the best weather for seeing a garden although it wasn’t raining when we walked round (unlike since we’ve got back home) and it largely felt like we had the place to ourselves.
That probably isn’t going to be the case on more clement days but it is partly down to the design. As you wander round there are numerous hidden nooks to explore. I particularly enjoyed the low-roofed water fountain chamber which had an amazing, deep reverberance.
It was about a 90 mile round trip so not quite on the doorstep but definitely a memorable gem and another chance to get value from our National Trust membership.
