Upper Slaughter Manor is a picturesque Elizabethan Grade II listed manor house set in idyllic Cotswold countryside above the River Eye. Set within 40 acres of established formal gardens and a woodlands, the main lawn areas lacked focus and cohesion to the house.
Creating areas of interest and intimidate spots to entertain guests. Combining the traditional elements of a formal garden with the informality and charm of a cottage garden, using a mix of plants to cohesively bring the garden together using shape, form and texture.
The island on the estate, affectionately known as Fairy Island, presented an opportunity to pause and create a board walk to enjoy the woodland even in the midst of winter.
A new arboretum in the vast expanse of the outer fields to create a vista fitting of the property. A new walled kitchen garden to grow fruit veg and flowers for the residents and closer to the driveway a new event field for hosting charity events has been incorporated. An amazing opportunity to restore the garden to its former glory and create a beautiful and historic space for the residents to enjoy.
