Cotswolds Manor House ... A tangle of pink climbing roses, hedgerows, and gloriously unruly flower beds.
For novelist Ian McEwan and his wife, journalist and novelist Annalena McAfee, the promise of a country home in an unspoiled setting found them on an eight-year journey in search of a place they could call home; luring them to the Cotswolds and an 18th-century Palladian architecture manor house with nine acres alongside the River Orwell. Tangles of pink climbing roses, hedgerows, Korean dogwoods, carpets of daisies, Irish yews, walnut trees, and gloriously unruly flower beds filled with an abundance of blooms; foxglove, lady's mantle, iris, allium to name a few. The spectacular property is just a couple of hours from London, which means they happily host friends and family almost every weekend. I only wish they would have included photos of the inside.... Enchanting.
