The Gardens at Monteviot lie along a dramatic slope of the Teviot valley. The sheltered terraced rose garden is Victorian: the river garden at the bottom was originally designed in the 1930s by Percy Cane.
Italianate in inspiration, this sheltered garden slopes down passed herbaceous plants, shrubs, bulbs and roses and has a breathtaking view of the River Teviot.
The Garden of Persistent Imagination at Monteviot is the most adventurous of all the gardens recently developed – an eclectic mixture of natural stone structures, a climbing rose and clematis avenue, an area of meditation leading to a large stone Moon Gate through which to step into the future.
