She says: “I am so proud of him and in awe of what he does in life. He is so full of courage, determination, and dedication to his work. He who dares…”

Nestled in the charming Cotswold countryside, Barnsley House was once home to revered garden designer Rosemary Verey.
Her legacy carries on today with the grounds being a classic example of an English country garden that evolves with the seasons.
With knot gardens, statues by Simon Verity and a working kitchen garden that supplies much of the produce found on the menus at The Potager restaurant and village pub, The Boot, there are four acres of carefully tended grounds to amble through and discover.
