Cotswold View Garden

By garden designer Matt Nichol. This garden with a view, high up in the exquisite Cotswold countryside, was designed to encompass the breathtaking panoramic vista.

The steep nature of the site posed a big design challenge.  The owners wanted to breathe new life into existing features, such as the old pigsty.  They wanted to have a variety of options for seating and dining within the garden. 

Cotswold View Garden

The design response was to create a terraced garden.  The two separate seating areas, surrounded with soft naturalistic planting, perfect for soaking up the sun and enjoying the surrounding countryside.

The old pigsty was renovated and converted into a covered dining area, ideal for quiet summer evenings or for entertaining guests. This garden with a view was designed by Matt Nichol on behalf of Isola Garden Design.
