DESCRIPTION
Shepherd House and its one acre garden form a walled triangle in the middle of the 18th century village of Inveresk. The main garden is to the rear of the house where the formality of the front garden is continued with a herb parterre and two symmetrical potagers. A formal rill runs the length of the garden, beneath a series of rose and clematis arches and connects the two ponds. There is a growing collection of specialist snowdrops which are mainly grown in beds and borders some of which will be displayed in our "Snowdrop Theatre". An addition to the garden in 2014 was a Shell House, designed by Lachlan Stewart. The garden has been featured in many magazines and in 2015 appeared on ITV in Alan Titchmarsh’s ‘Britain’s Best Back Gardens‘. Charles and Ann have also published a book 'Shepherd House Garden' which is for sale at Open Days, by application to Shepherd House or the web site.

DIRECTIONS
The garden is near Musselburgh. From the A1 take the A6094 exit signed Wallyford and Dalkeith and follow signs to Inveresk.
