‘CAPABILITY’ BROWN – 300th ANNIVERSARY
2016 saw the 300th anniversary of the birth of England's greatest gardener, Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, best-known for designing gardens and landscapes at some of the country's grandest stately homes including Blenheim Palace, Chatsworth, Highclere Castle, Burghley, Weston Park and Compton Verney.
‘Capability’ Brown's landscape gardens are synonymous with England's green and pleasant land with their seemingly natural rolling hills, curving lakes, flowing rivers and majestic trees.
There are over 150 Brown gardens and landscapes in England, including some not usually open to visitors. The list below includes Farm Stay B&Bs and self-catering properties with a Capability Brown garden nearby.
