Teversal Manor is a house in Derbyshire which is run as a cafe and gift shop. The food is first class and the service is excellent. Attached to the house is a splendid garden which is arranged in two parts. The main area behind the house is laid to lawn and beds, dropping in levels with steps between. At the side is a maze of smaller beds and features, forming a sculpture garden
We know the Manor from one of our relatives working there. Today we went to meet one of Rosies old friends from the distant past. We had an excellent day.
Walking in the gardens was a delight. The flower beds are just starting to look impressive, with blooms appearing everywhere and trees in blossom. After the rains, there is still some work to do. I was disappointed to find that thieves had stolen the ornate lead roofing from the sun house and the gazebo.
In a few weeks, the garden will be at its best, with more blooms and the developing beds finished to show new exhibits to their full potential.
We are looking forward to a return visit in the summer, to see the changes and perhaps photograph some butterflies and bees.
