It is a family home that has been described by visitors as ‘a little piece of heaven’ with gardens providing colour and delight throughout the seasons. But what lies behind the doors of the ‘Rural Retreat’ is something that only a few visitors get to find out.
Following demand and the success of last years Autumn tours, Houghton Lodge & Gardens has organised a further four bespoke tours, for visitors to discover more about the stunning 18th century Cottage Orné which is idyllically set above the River Test.
The dates and times are:
- Saturday 13th June 11.00 am
- Thursday 1st October 14.30 pm
- Saturday 3rd October 11.00 am
Inside the house, the circular Music Room is one of the most beautiful rooms to be seen, with its domed ceiling adorned with trompe l’oeil butterflies and flowers, and the Dining Room is decorated with silk hand-painted wallpaper from China. The exotic birds and exuberant peonies, tell a story of friendship, peace, love and luck.
Tickets cost £15.00 per person and include being able to enjoy the gardens after the tour.
