Backwell House 200

Backwell, England

Brief Description

Backwell House is an early-19th-century house and garden. Features include a ha-ha separating the garden from a small meadow, mature specimen trees and a rose garden of about 1900. The walled garden has been maintained for the last 40 years as a private garden. Although it is currently called the kitchen garden it is at present purely ornamental and hosts a variety of rose species. The house has recently been refurbished and will shortly (2016) be opening as a guesthouse.

Detailed Description
