These gardens are essentially the creation of Chloe Jenkins, aided and abetted by the input of previous generations at Childerley.
The long terrace walk, together with the moated walk being part of the original Elizabethan house, the walled kitchen garden a Victorian addition, while the rockery garden with its curving paved paths was introduced during the Edwardian era. The garden in September with its collection of roses will display vivid colours. In the White Garden will be huge blooms of white Dahlia, Rommneya coulteri and white cosmos.
A delightful autumnal scene with an abundance of fruits, including apple, pear, quince lemons and medlars and a carpet of cyclamen in the copse along the moated walk and scented Abelia grandiflora towards the chapel.
Located off the A428 between the Cambourne and Dry Drayton exits, along what is know as the St Neots Road. The turning to Childerley Drive is between Caldecote and Bourn, is signposted from the St Neots Road and is approximately 1.5 miles along (Do not approach Childerley from Boxworth as it leads to a gated farm track)
