Private Greenhouse - Vinery - England
Our past few days have been spent exploring Andalusia; creating a photo-essay for American brand Woolrich. We've negotiated unsealed mountain roads, eaten tomatoes for breakfast and stood in awe at huge cactuses that manage to live outside of a greenhouse. Back now and with our feet firmly on English soil (we know this because it's rained almost non-stop since we landed) we are spending our weekend reliving our short-but-sweet Spanish adventure and prepping our photos that we will of course share when they're ready.
Our visual treats for you this weekend come from a quiet (and up-to-now secret) corner of Derbyshire, and more specifically from within the gardens of Renishaw Hall.
We were invited for a special tour of the vineries that sit on the site of the old orchards and though the greenhouses are not open to the public we thought it only fair that we share them with you via the magical power of the internet.
We'd like to thank Renishaw Hall (and our tour guide especially) for sharing their vineries with us. As mentioned before, the greenhouses live in a private area of the gardens that are not accessible to the public but the rest of the (incredible) Italianate gardens are very much open for visitors - after March 22nd this year... Which is approaching very quickly!
We recommend that you check the website before visiting for up-to-date information.
And just for the record: THIS is what our greenhouse dreams are made of. We love the wild and the overgrown and we can even forgive the swirly Victorian architecture because the nature has managed to make the perfect curves all wonky. A-mazing.
