The Garden at Oak House No.1 Hotel
The Garden at Oak House No.1 Hotel is a gem, small and cosy but perfectly quiet and peaceful yet right in the heart of beautiful Tetbury. Plus you are within one minute of the town centre and it’s array of antique shops, restaurants and pubs. Our aim was to make the garden as interesting as the interiors of the house, with many different things to catch your eye. Surrounded by high mellow stoned Cotswolds walls, there are different areas to sit either around the table for afternoon tea or on a secluded decked area with soft comfy sofas and shady umbrellas. There are a mix of different styles and objects found from all over the world which all sit effortlessly in harmony in this Cotswolds setting. The larger than life sized statue made from teak and nearly 300 years old was found in Bali as were the large ornately carved stone pots, they were shipped back to Marseilles originally when living in Provence and then brought back to England. The beautiful iron antique rose arch in the centre of the lawn (once featured in a Woody Allen movie), now covered by a magnificent wisteria creeper, is a wonderful centrepiece to the garden. The bird boxes were made by Gary from scraps of reclaimed wood, ‘accommodation for our guests of the feathered variety’ we call them at Oak House No.1. There are concrete carved sculptures by Saint Martins friend and artist Adam Edwards (BA Hons), modern in style but beautifully aged heads which blend happily with other antique stone heads from a derelict monastery in Ireland. We hope that the garden matches the interiors of Oak House No.1, something a little different from the ordinary with many talking points and things to enjoy. We recently had fun in the garden with guest and Oscar winner Sir Tom Stoppard featured below.
