Batcombe House, Somerset

A large country garden split into several garden areas. On one side of the garden, a series of terraces run uphill, including a family garden with large herbaceous borders, a kitchen garden, swimming pool garden and orchard with wild flowers. On the otherside, a contemporary amphitheatre falls down the other hillside where curved banks echo the striations of the paths made by sheep over centuries on the banks of the valley beyond.
