Peckover House and Garden, Cambridgeshire

Alexa's Rose Garden, Peckover House

There’s a secret gem of a garden waiting to be explored behind this elegant Georgian town house. The two acres of interesting and exuberant planting reach their flowering peak in summer.

Among the highlights is ‘Alexa’s Rose Garden,’ named after the Hon. Alexandrina Peckover, who gave the estate to the Trust in 1943.
Here you’ll find over 60 rose varieties, mostly lovely, old fashioned, scented roses which the Victorians and Edwardians delighted in. It’s easy to see why these are in vogue once more.
