Abbey House Garden

Malmesbury, Wiltshire, SN16 9AS

Chris Dee 0 133 Article rating: No rating

Abbey House Gardens, is a stone’s throw from Malmesbury Abbey and is a significant garden in the Cotswolds. It shot to fame under its previous owners who were naturists and could be seen at work in the garden covered by little more than a tool belt or strategically-placed rosebud. Outraged locals (we're told that some were so outraged that they had to stand on a box for a better look) calmed down after a while. Fame followed, with Gordon Ramsey and Alan Titchmarsh/BBC Gardener's World amongst those who filmed the Adam and Eve experience.
