A country house garden in Cambridge has been praised for "coming alive" during the coldest months of the year.

The Winter Garden at Anglesey Abbey is the latest site to be commended in the Daily Telegraph's "Enjoy England Trips" series, with the newspaper noting that winter is the ideal time to view the grounds of this Jacobean-style manor.

"Under the watchful eye of head gardener Richard Todd, a carpet of white snowdrops make their first push out of the ground, while the winter honeysuckle warms cold noses with its distinctive sweet scent," comments the paper.

"In fact, there's over 150 species of plant competing for your attention during January and February."

The layout of the garden is also praised for its intricate, peaceful walks, as well as its exotic plants that endure in the "chilly winter air".

Homeowners aiming to add a cosy and stylish feature to their gardens this winter could choose to invest in a wooden log cabin or garden office. Last week, the Wiltshire Gazette and Herald reported that the garden at Brook House in Bromham, Wiltshire is to be turned into a "winter wonderland" for a charity event this weekend.
