I had a few hours free during half term so I went to visit a National Trust garden quite near me in Holt, Wiltshire. This is a garden that is best in the early Spring as it has so many beautiful Spring flowers.
The garden is a typical English garden with topiary and different ‘garden rooms’ to wander through. There are place to sit and enjoy the different views that open up around the garden. This is not a large place but the sort of garden to go for a couple of hours and perhaps, enjoy a cuppa and piece of cake in the tearoom. The house is not open to the public.
The Courts garden has many mature trees so is a lovely place to take a picnic, a game of hide and seek or a place for a short stroll. There are many spring bulbs naturalised in the lawn and throughout the herbaceous borders. These, together with Hellebores, make a delightful Spring flower display.
The garden has many Hellebores, crocuses, snowdrops and emerging daffodils. They make for a stunning display so I shall leave you with some more photographs.
I had a lovely couple of hours strolling in the gardens admiring the flowers. I hope you have enjoyed my photographs.
You may also enjoy some other gardens I have visited.
