Testimonial: Maggie Young, Southampton.

One of the most well equipped cottages we have stayed in. The cottage was really dog friendly with plenty of great places to walk.

Gardens

The extensive grounds of Cossington Park are a magical collection of spaces for any mood in every season.

The flint walls and outbuildings, burgundy paintwork of gates leading from space to space and wrought iron decorative arbours provide the enduring framework for the collection of gardens adjacent to the house.

Wander amongst the beautifully espaliered apple, pear and apricot trees, the purity and delicacy of the white garden.

Immerse yourself in the warm smell of ripening figs, the gentle hum of the bees hard at work on the lavender, the enthusiastic performance of the many song birds, or catch the silent swoop of a buzzard through an autumn mist. Be quiet, and you can imagine a glimpse of the white rabbit disappearing around a corner, late for an appointment.

Pause for a rest on the bench underneath the exotic Chinese Zelkova elm tree, imagining its silent witness of 200 years of Cossington life.

Venture further, leaving voices and activity behind you, and let the breeze take you through the ancient woodland, the meadow alive with butterflies and swishing grasses, and the oh-so English orchard.

The gardens of Cossington are for contemplation, relaxation, play and exploration.

Let your children and dogs go feral, or find your inner child and go feral yourself. Place your green-fingered offspring in the safe and informative hands of Claire, the gardener, while you take your inner zen for a solitary walk, or get competitive on the croquet lawn. The alfresco possibilities are endless.
