For centuries most large country houses had a walled kitchen garden, supplying food, herbs and flowers for the household. Today, they are enjoying a renaissance. Highlights include Lord Rothschild's impeccably restored family garden at Eythrope, the expansive gardens at West Dean and a rarely seen private garden by Arne Maynard. Hotels range from a restored manor house to a comfortable boutique inn, both with celebrated farm-to-table restaurants.
