English Country Gardens

The nights are drawing out and spring is well and truly here. Our Sleeps12 properties have some lovely features that allow you to enjoy Spring in style and comfort.

Luxury is our speciality and we show this in all areas including the outside space. Our gardens are an integral part of the Sleeps12 experience and our Sleeps12 properties have some absolute stunners. We ensure that your time in a property is amazing both inside and out for example luxury outdoor furniture features highly in all of our properties from sun loungers to tables and chairs that can seat the whole party.

Picture perfect garden design stands out in properties such as Cobbleside where charm with a Secret Garden feel reflects the beauty of the Georgian property. Tumbling flowers and stone seating areas mix perfectly, rather like gin and tonic I think!

Easter egg hunts and childish fun happens in gardens like The Cottage Beyond. Lots of dimensions and planting by the committed gardener at this property creates a garden where the children always have somewhere else to explore and can run freely on the grass areas. If you ask nicely the owners will even set up some wildlife activities such as moth catching and you will find bird spotting books and journals in the house to help you get closer to nature.

Compact gardens can also deliver that special something. Perfect for outside dining Walnut Arbour features beautifully planted cottage garden beds which smell amazing when you are dining outside in the evenings.

Ham Bottom and Fuzzy Orchard are all about size. With room for a football match and space to spare for sunbathing by the hot tub these gardens are fully decked out with the latest play equipment and even BBQ lodges which allow you to BBQ inside – yes you read that correctly INSIDE! Cosy and spacious these BBQ huts are unique and quirky in design. You’ll go home to measure up your own garden!

A courtyard feeling at Coat Barn is a sociable experience. With plenty of sun loungers this garden is a sun trap and especially good for families who like to do different things. Grandma and Granddad can have a cup of tea, the older kids can be in the pool and the younger members of the family can be having a game of rugby on the lawn while the parents have a little read on the loungers.

Holemoor Stables has a dining area that overlooks a lake which envokes a certain decadence which may explain the popularity of this stunning property. Like Coat Barn the garden is surrounded by elements of the property allowing a closeness for the whole party. You may not be able to play hide and seek but you can definitely have an amazing party!

That’s all for now, we will get a little closer to some of our other properties nearer the summer. At Sleeps12 we take care to make sure the property you are staying in is beautiful both inside and out as we know holidays are about the whole package.
