About the garden
Mr & Mrs A.R. Macdonald-Buchanan
Cottesbrooke is the garden with everything - a short drive through majestic parkland with a classical bridge and a fabulously pretty house. A remarkable 18th-century landscaped park with lakes and drifts of daffodils and primulas along with many Scheemakers's statues from Stowe, pergolas, allées and a 300-year-old cedar. It boasts new developments each year, immaculate maintenance, plants-a-plenty and the signatures of Geoffrey Jellicoe, Sylvia Crowe, James Alexander-Sinclair and Arne Maynard among the designers who have helped develop it.
