Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire

Set on the edge of a magnificent beech wood, this family garden merges effortlessly into the countryside beyond, offering uninterrupted views. Heavy clay soil and deep shade were only some of the challenges faced on this sloping site. Lush planting creates a subterranean jungle for the children and a selection of stylish decks provide the adults with a variety of areas to unwind throughout the day.
