Garden in winter

There is something magical about snow – our home in Llanfoist is near Abergavenny in Monmouthshire.

When we decided that we would be selli ng our house we thought it would be rather nice for someone interested  to see what it is like in the winter as well as in the summer.  We do not often have enough snow to cover the ground, but when we do the whole garden changes into a silent white space. This large georgian country house set in it’s own secluded gardens and grounds is currently for sale.  It has been the home of the fashion designers Charles and Patricia Lester for over thirty-five years.

The side of the house freshly painted with snow!
