Grand design – Times Online

Some gardens should be visited with friends: they are sociable places that invite picnics. Others, such as Herterton House on the fringes of the Northumberland Moors, should be sought out when you need peace, a place to sit and gather together your thoughts. Within the dry-stone walls that give shelter from the searing easterlies is a garden so tranquil that it has the feeling of a monastic cloister. I have been visiting Herterton for 15 years, and my trips have slowly revised what I now consider to be the point of a garden.
