“The garden is quite a love… I go and refresh myself every now and then, and then come back to Solitary Coolness.”

JANE AUSTIN


Garden type: Formal regency garden


Area: Pittville Cheltenham


Garden designer: Keltie & Clark


Garden brief

This house is a grade II listed property and it is of historical importance in the past of Pittville and the park in Cheltenham. The clients were very interested in being sympathetic to the history and the building by giving the property the garden it deserved. We commenced a report of the building and its history. With this information and fascinating past the garden design evolved to use traditional products and planting to give this garden a timeless feel for the house to sit in.


The garden design

There were two spectacular trees in the garden that dwarfed the surroundings. The garden had to be designed with these in mind and everything scaled between these trees and the house. Simplicity but bold lines created a regency feel and the traditional forest of dean stone was used to create a feeling that the house always had this garden but with a fresh feel.

A complex planting design with many areas with different planting schemes gave a nod to the history of the house and that it was built for the nurseryman that planted Pittville Park as well as providing year-round interest and lots of colour. The basement wall of the house was moved to flood light into the lower rooms and create mini garden as picture frames from these lower windows. A calming but elegant garden has been created in a style that even Jane Austin herself would have loved.
