An interplay of formality and wildness is present in Mona Farm’s award winning gardens. Majestic century old trees connect the present to the past and provide a sense of calm and tranquillity. Early morning fog often shrouds the property before revealing silver toned grounds and reflections of light from the lake.
The garden, designed in the style of Lancelot (Capability) Brown, welcomes guests via the original carriageway lined with Poplars to discover vast sweeping lawns framed by an enchanting elm woodland. Grand Oak and Linden create a magnificent and commanding backdrop for more intimate garden spaces.
A garden for all seasons; by Winter the soft tracery of bare boughs conjures up thoughts of an ancient kingdom tinged with frost & wisps of lichen. By Spring, bulbs long dormant under the sod have broken through to release a brilliant floral display heralding new beginnings. Summer comes, and with it, the gentle tones of green which form leafy shields for bird song, and Autumn; presenting a fireworks display of every conceivable colour from purply black to iridescent gold.
2018 will see the introduction of a contemporary sculpture collection amongst the gardens.
Stay at Mona Farm to discover all that the gardens have to offer in private or make a day trip to visit during one of Mona Farm’s open days.
