I love the National Trust’s gardens at Mottisfont Abbey in Hampshire and have visited numerous times. I don’t just smell the fabulous roses and eat cakes in the tearooms though – I take photos and plot stories. Teacher’s Pet in Over The Garden Fence is set at Mottisfont (the bridge is the location of one scene).
On Friday I went back and took more photos – which the National Trust will be using on their social media pages over the next few weeks.
I hope they encourage more people to visit this wonderful place (there’s a house, waterside walks, estate and winter garden to explore as well as the fabulous walled rose gardens). Who knows, maybe it’ll even help my book sales?
