The Coach House, Ampney Crucis

Earlier this year I visited the garden at The Coach House, Ampney Crucis.  From the moment I walked through the entrance gates I knew I was in for a treat.

Mel Tanner’s charming easy manner, her tch1
passion for plants and intimate, hands-on
knowledge of the garden’s creation
make her a perfect host.

The attention to detail is impressive. The quality of the planting and hard landscaping combined with clever use of hedging and vistas ensure that there is a new delight round every corner.

If you get the chance to visit jump at it, these photos are just a taster.

    • The scarecrow is sturdily made and very appealing. There are other very personal touches, including a wonderful statue of a dog, but I was wary of showing too much and spoiling the fun for future visitors.
