Tucked away behind this beautiful Tudor house in Coggeshall, Essex, is a simple but charming garden.
The garden is divided into three distinct areas.
The first section near the house has a handsome, herringbone brick path leading through to a lawned area.
This style of path works so well with the Tudor building.
There are plenty of benches and a croquet set ready for play and beyond this is the vegetable garden.
The timber screen divides the garden and frames some nice views of the house.
There’s a very smart bench under this timber shelter:
hanging up inside are a variety of drying flower-heads, the seeds will be collected to grow plants for next year. I do like this sustainable approach to gardening, it’s so simple.
