Wordless Wednesday - Visit Vann this week if you can and see the Gertrude Jekyll water garden

Time to reflect at Vann - the listed house seen through a glass ball in the garden
Vann dates back to 1546, but was restored and renovated in Arts & Crafts style by W.D. Caroe
Now is a good time to see the structure of the Arts & Crafts pergola

Vann is near Godalming in Surrey and is open every day this week for the NGS until Sunday - 10.00-18.00. From next week it is open every Wednesday to visitors (10.00-18.00). Admission is £6.00. For a full review and more pictures click here.
