In 1918, the Hon Gerald Samuel Montagu purchased Great Fosters and commissioned the famous architect W H Romaine-Walker to convert the house to the Elizabethan design that it honours to this day. W H Romaine-Walker and Gilbert Jenkins worked together to establish the exceptional gardens, with their clipped yew hedges, knot garden and archery pavilion. Over the years, the grounds have been extended, restored and enhanced, but aside from their scenic and floral acclaim they also boast historical renown in their own right, with features such as the Drake sundial, which historians suggest may have been donated by Sir Francis Drake. Today the gardens offer a stunning setting for a romantic wedding and is an idyllic place for visitors to relax in privacy. They feature a Saxon moat with wisteria draped Japanese bridge leading to a sunken rose garden, grassed amphitheatre, four secret gardens and a lake.
