Peckover House 2/7

The two acre garden at Peckover House is regarded as one of the finest walled town gardens in the country, and offers rare trees, summerhouses, two pool gardens, over 70 species of roses and a croquet lawn. There are also glasshouses, including an Orangery with 300 year old orange trees, but more of that another time. This is the view of the rear of the house from the gardens.

I am always impressed by the green. The garden makes the property. Looks like a great place.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely garden Astrid but you'll have to wait until next week to see it.
A handsome house Brian. Not one I have visited
Brian Walbey: We go out with the volunteers at Calke Abbey a couple of times a year when they organise coach outings to other NT properties, it helps to make the numbers up on the coach. In June we are going to Claydon House, Bucks., and perhaps somewhere else in September.

It looks good from the rear too
Brian Walbey: And as you will see nice inside as well.
Well it seems to have most of the stuff that one would expect in an important house Brian. It looks like a warm and charming house.
Brian Walbey: It is a nice house Chad, a few shots from inside during the week.
Quite a handsome place Brian! Very nicely framed.
Brian Walbey: Yes we liked this house very much Richard.
I love the red brick
Brian Walbey: Yes nice isn't it.
You have seduced me with the talk of those gardens then, "but more of that another time."
Brian Walbey: Ah well this week we look inside the house for a few days then next week and a bit I will show you parts of the lovely garden Mary, I'm sure will like the inside.

Brian Walbey: Well next week you get a chance to see parts of it, but first inside the house.
A fine solid looking house Brian, and the garden sounds delightful

It looks splendid. I'd be happy with a back door like that. I like the window on the first floor over the doorway.
Brian Walbey: That whole centre section is quite nice isn't it.
i like the series of different arches from the door up to the third level Brian... it's a wonderful green space and a handsome building....petersmile
Brian Walbey: That whole centre section is quite nice isn't it.
Beautiful architecture, not something we get to see much in the states
Brian Walbey: No doubt some of the states will have Georgian period architecture, I guess it depends where we Europeans had got to when different architectural styles became the fashion.
I love the green door!
Brian Walbey: Nice isn't it. Bit too big for my house though.
