An elegant new garden for a newly refurbished Arts & Crafts style house in the Surrey Hills, consisting of formal lawns and terraces, tree-lined walks and water features, a screened tennis court and a 'thunder house' as described by Gertrude Jekyll in her seminal work Gardens for Small Country Houses. The formal gardens to the south of the house sit within an open woodland glade, which provides the garden with its backdrop.
