Penns in the Rocks

About the garden

Penns in the Rocks is an early 18th-century redbrick house, built for the family of William Penn of Pennsylvania. The late Lord Gibson was Chairman of the Arts Council, and of the National Trust. He and Lady Gibson remodelled the interior of the house, and with the help of Lanning Roper adapted the garden from Dorothy Wellesley's original design.
