  • From the early 18th century, British landscape gardeners had been creating gardens inspired by pictures, but by 1800 a backlash had set in. Critics considered the grassy vistas designed by Capability Brown too smooth and tidy. Scotney’s picturesque garden is a last fling in this backlash style of gardening. Often described as the most romantic garden in England, the ruins of the small 14th century castle are reflected in its moat, forming the backdrop to a garden of breathtaking beauty and considerable importance to the garden historian. Rhododendrons and azaleas in season and specimen trees offer picturesque views from all angles; truly an enchanted place. Unusual heather-thatched Ice House. Wonderful woodland and parkland with over 770 acres to explore.
