When garden designer Alison Jenkins and her partner Patrick decided to leave London, they fell in love with this farmhouse, nestled on the side of a hill outside Bath, Somerset. Major building work followed inside, whilst outside the garden was re-lanscaped, giving Alison a blank canvas to design her garden. A large bed was created by the house, alongside a long rill which collects water from a source up the hill. On the other side of the house, a large kitchen garden was built.
In late June, the tall spires of Digitalis and Eremerus float amongst the Sanguisorbia echoing the rusty colour of the corten steel beds, railings and gates, a nod to its farming past.
