Asthall Manor is an intriguing place – a Jacobean manor house surrounded by a garden, woodland and meadows that blend into the glorious Windrush valley landscape beyond. It is a private home that – in more usual times – regularly welcomes visitors to wander its meandering paths, discover its secret spaces and connect with nature, art and each other.
The garden was designed and largely planted by Isabel & Julian Bannerman in 1997-98, and has featured in several books and magazine articles. It is open once or twice most years for the National Garden Scheme, and occasionally for other events.
The infamous Mitford sisters lived here from 1919-1926, and you can read about this and other Asthall adventures on our history page.
