Summer gardens Durham UK

Visited the charming, romantic gardens of Crook Hall in Durham, and as close to the city it is, it's a million light years away from the noise and bustle. Keith and Maggie Bell have created a beautiful work of love in a series of themed gardens that take you places. No stuffy formal beds here, but areas that are a riot of wild flowers, a walled garden to disappear into - typical English plants cheek by jowl and loving the close proximity. The gardens urge the visitor to follow the curved paths, discover the beauty of what man and nature can do. Well done Maggie and Keith - you are legends and thanks for very good coffee and cake. If you visit here, you will fall under the spell of the enchanting gardens - and that's a promise.
