A quintessentially English garden situated close to the River Thames and the Chiltern Hills
Old Thatch was owned by Enid Blyton from 1929 until 1938. She was inspired to write over 40 books during this time whilst tending to the two acre garden that she loved so much. Now owned by garden designer Jacky Hawthorne, the gardens include formal, contemporary and naturalistic areas, preserving the past whilst introducing structure and design.
There is also an onsite tea room where you can enjoy homemade cakes, or take a seat in the cottage garden and enjoy the views over the newt pond which Blyton herself introduced in the 1930s.
