Perfection! Difficult to improve upon.

Tennis Court Terrace

There is an incredible range of shades on offer from our shrubs, all the way from the gold of the rare Quercus robur ‘Concordia’ to the contrasting red and green of Photinia x fraserii ‘Red robin’ and deep purple of Cotinus ‘Grace’. A fine display of hostas (the variegated ‘Frances Williams’ notable among them) interplanted with a splendid Euphorbia introduced here, E. griffithii ‘Fireglow’. Over-hanging this bed is an incomparable Hoheria ‘Glory of Amlwch’, offering a bright white-flowered home to every bee in Devon from July.

Looking around The Tennis Court Terrace, you can see how ghosts of the medieval vicarage are used in the Fortescue design – the old staircase with its newel post, the terrace stonework where horizontal remains give way to Fortescue’s vertical stonework, a distinctive feature of this high rainfall area, enabling good drainage.
