Peckover House -
Elegant Georgian town house with wonderful walled garden
Peckover House is a secret gem, an oasis hidden away in an urban environment. A classic Georgian merchants town house, it was lived in by the Peckover family for 150 years.
The Peckovers were staunch Quakers, which meant they had a very simple lifestyle - yet at the same time they ran a successful private bank. Both facets of their life can be seen as you wander through the house and gardens.
The gardens themselves are outstanding - 0.8 hectares (2 acres) of sensory delight, complete with orangery, summer-houses, croquet lawn and rose garden with more than 60 species of rose.
