Garden door at Sudbrook Cottage


The one garden that we all wanted to see at Ham Open Gardens 2011 was Sudbrook Cottage, not least because it was originally created by Beverley Nicholas who wrote about it in his Sudbrook Trilogy starting with Garden Open Today.

The other reason for wanting to see it was the promise given by the front garden there which is small but neat, ordered and colourful.

Entrance to the garden is via a quaint door in the long brick wall that sweeps along Ham Gate Avenue back towards Ham Common. On crossing the threshold the first thing that you notice is the side of the cottage that looks just as pretty as the front garden for all the same reasons.
