A delightful formal garden around a 17th-century manor, small pools, varied borders and secluded lawns.
Tintinhull Garden, located in Tintinhull, Yeovil, Somerset, England is a small 20th century Arts and Crafts garden surrounding a 17th century house. The property is in the ownership of the National Trust.
The garden is laid out into areas separated by walls and hedges.
The garden layout was developed in the early 20th century, which was expanded and planted starting in 1933 by Phyllis Reiss in a “Hidcote” style. In 1954 Reiss gave the house and garden to the National Trust, but continued to live in the house and care for the garden until her death in 1961. From then on, the Trust let the house to a variety of tenants, including the garden designer and writer Penelope Hobhouse and her husband Prof John Malins from 1980 to 1993.
