Iford Manor


Prologue

 

 

 

The Italianate garden at Iford on the border of Somerset and Wiltshire is on of the most complete Italian style gardens in the South West of England. The manor house sits idyllically by the Frome River in this steep-sided valley. Iford Manor is medieval in origin, the classical facade being added in the eighteenth century when the hanging woodlands above the garden were planted.

A visit to the Peto Garden at Iford includes delightful features such as the Loggia, the Great Terrace, the Casita and the largest of Peto’s garden buildings, the Cloisters.
