The most lovely of editors Clare Foster at H&G, sends me on some stunning garden shoots a couple of times a year and this was one of them, I have shot the hotel before, many years ago for a Sunday supp I think, I remember thinking what lovely gardens and lake were so strangely I am back to shoot them now. A good forecast for the morning so I got there just before 5am, dawn breaking and just a hint of mist forming over the lower meadow and lake. They have done a great job at keeping it just tame in the meadow and wet lands around the lake and I would describe the rest of the garden as formal cottage, full of colour. A great vision of the owners and lots of hard work by the gardeners. Gravetye Manor is well worth a look.
