Iford Manor and Peto Garden

 

Iford Manor rests in the Iford Valley, Wiltshire and is mediaeval in origin, the classical facade being added in the eighteenth century when the hanging woodlands above the garden were planted.

 

The Grade 1 Italianate garden at the Manor was designed by the architect and landscape gardener Harold Ainsworth Peto who lived here from 1899 to 1933. A unique and romantic hillside garden, it is characterised by steps, terraces, sculpture and magnificent rural views and is open to the public from April to October.
