More Summer Houses Articles Hidcote Manor in Gloucestershire is planning to turn its gardens into a "winter wonderland" this weekend by installing a range of "eye-catching illuminations".
The National Trust attraction will host the event from Friday (November 26th), until Sunday evening, with admission priced at £6 and the illuminations due to be shown between 16:30 and 21:30 GMT.
Pamela Johnston, events and functions coordinator at Hidcote Manor, described the event as "a unique opportunity for visitors to experience the garden in an entirely new light".
She said people can look forward to "enchanting ambience with spine-tingling effects" as they explore the attraction near Chipping Campden.
Homeowners aiming to improve their own gardens have the option of erecting stylish summer houses or garden offices. Hidcote, which was created by celebrated horticulturalist Major Lawrence Johnston, is regarded as one of England's most famous gardens in the "Arts and Crafts style".
It features a collection of rare shrubs, unusual plant species and herbaceous borders, with each of the garden's "rooms" said to possess its own distinct character.
