Four Cottages for ‘Capability’ Gardeners

When gardening is more something you peruse than partake in

Church House Robertsbridge


Personally inspected UK cottages close to a Capability Brown garden or two

Foremans House, Bridlington, East Riding

An eco friendly property amidst a working farm in the Yorkshire Wolds yet just three miles from stunning sandy beaches.
Sleeps 10 (2 kings, 1 double, 2 twins) from £644/week
Capability fix: Burton Constable

Great Combe Lodge – 12 Indigo Lake, Bovey Tracey, Devon

You can’t get much closer to water than this. This is a get-away-from-it-all place on the edge of Dartmoor National Park offering just the tranquility you need. Either bring your fishing licence or your swimmers (there’s a hot tub on the deck), or maybe both!
Sleeps 4 (1 double, 1 twin) from £355/week
Capability fix: Ugbrooke Park, Widdicombe, Mamhead Castle

Elmhurst Cottage, Chipping Campden, Warwickshire

If picture perfect Cotswold cottage is what you’re looking for, look no further. With space and facilities to entertain adults and kids, flagstone floors and original features dating back to the 1600s you’ll fall in love with Shakespeare country in the northern Cotswolds. Short breaks available.
Sleeps 8 (2 kings/twins, 2 doubles) from £808/week
Capability fix: Warwick Castle, Ragley Hall

Church House, Robertsbridge, East Sussex

A sprawling country house in large gardens close to Battle and the seaside at Bexhill. A house you imagine filled with the laughter of family celebrations and dinners – it’s just waiting for you to arrive.
Sleeps 10 (2 kings, 2 doubles, 1 twin) from £708/week
Capability fix: Sheffield Park
