Somerset, ‘land of the summer people’, where softly rounded hills, wooded coombes and lush meadows give a good grazing throughout the year; also the land of cricket, fine ciders, famous cheeses, ‘withy’ plantations as well as gorgeous summer long gardens.  A lot has been happening in Somerset over the past few years, Helen Yemm & Sophie Piebenga will introduce you to the riches of this special county including the exciting developments at The Newt, (formerly Hadspen House), as well as a garden designed by Piet Oudolf and view the latest developments at Iford Manor where former Sissinghurst head gardener, Troy Scott Smith is now hard at work. The tour is based at the Georgian Summer Lodge Hotel,  just across the border in Dorset, chosen for its high standards where all the bedrooms are divinely pretty and comfortable, the food is of the highest quality and the staff could not be more caring; you will be warmly welcomed.
