The Garden

Fenton House at the top of Hampstead's Holly Hill has extensive walled gardens, with formal walks and lawns, a sunken rose garden, kitchen garden and a 300-year-old orchard. On the upper level, south of the house, a broad path runs from a wrought-iron gate alongside mature heritage trees and newly created beds. To the north are terrace walks around a formal lawn and sunken rose garden. Relaxed planting among trimmed yew and box hedges provides year-round colour and interest. Steps beyond the rose garden lead to a sunken, walled orchard area, glasshouse, culinary herb border, cut-flower beds and vegetables.
