Winter days out

Gardens and parks in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight  

Explore the beauty and tranquillity a garden can offer in winter. At Mottisfont, the winter garden is full of colour and scent from rich red dogwood, silvery ornamental bramble, and sweet-scented honeysuckles. From late January, snowdrops litter the ground. Frost-covered topiary sparkles in low winter sun at Hinton Ampner, and at The Vyne you can take in historic vistas across its magnificent lake.
