Kelmarsh Hall Gardens, near Kettering
The gardens of Kelmarsh Hall Estate are essentially 20th century in origin and design and are largely attributable to Nancy Lancaster.
Kelmarsh Hall is another beautiful garden we feature on our guide.
There are lumpy hedges pictured here and a pretty sunken garden with pale scented flowers.
See the colourful double herbaceous borders and the old fashioned Rose garden which has views to the church.
The grass terrace below the garden infront of the Hall, with its rows of pleached limes on either side, together with the tapis vert, a wild flower meadow beyond, flanked by avenues of red chestnuts leading down to the lakes, was designed by Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe in 1936.
The sloping walled garden has beautiful colourful displays in a naturalistic style throughout the year.
The Hall dating from the 1730s was designed by James Gibbs and its interior is well worth seeing.
The garden may be open for snowdrop days - see website for up to date details.
