Nestled in the Surrey countryside near Godalming, this internationally renowned five-acre garden is formed by a series of "rooms" which surround and complement a family home dating from the 16th century. From the old Cottage Garden with delightfully informal planting in a formal setting, to the robust Pergola of Bargate stone by W.D. Caroe, the Arts and Crafts architect and grandfather of the present owners, to the Water Garden, laid out and planted nearly 100 years ago by Gertrude Jekyll, and the newly designed and planted Centenary Garden, Vann offers inspiration to expert and amateur gardeners alike.
