Norman Wisdom26th September 2010 • Places to Visit • Stephanie Donaldson
We’ve just returned from a long weekend in Normandy visiting a selection of fine gardens courtesy of French Gardens Today and Brittany Ferries – what a treat! Our hotel, Hotel des Ormes in the civilised seaside town of Barneville Carteret was charming with the bonus of a superb garden. The gardens we visited (many of which are not open to the public) ranged from the grandest of the grand formal gardens to a fascinating plantsman’s garden. I’m inspired and exhilarated!
