Crockham House, Kent

A house that is believed to have been built in the 15th century, with additions from later centuries. Many of its original features remain, and so you could imagine that its famous past visitors may recognise the house as we see it today. The garden itself was designed by Octavia Hill, co-founder of the National Trust, and Alice Bowes-Lyons owned it in the 1930s, while it is even rumoured that the Queen Mother played in the gardens.

The gardens are around 20 acres and include topiary, Italianate style, lush green lawns and lots of hidden away privacy. The property itself has seven bedrooms and five bathrooms.

Price: Guide price £3,500,000

Oare House, Exmoor

This is a country retreat like no other. Situated in the Doone Valley, Oare House is hidden among its beautiful 167 acres, and - on top of that - 160 acres of shooting rights across the adjoining land.

This garden has been carefully looked after and thought through, with a beautiful array of plants adding colour and texture that surround the house. With views of green rolling hills and a river bed not far away, it would be quite easy to forget you're not in paradise. The house is situated just at the edge of Exmoor National Park and overlooks Oare Church, which fans of the novel Lorna Doone will likely recognise.

Price: Guide price £2,500,000

Brock Street, Bath

Who says a stunning garden needs to be in the middle of nowhere? This beautiful Georgian townhouse has a perfectly proportioned south facing walled garden slap bang in a city. Feeling a little like an Italianate walled garden, the outside space has garden rooms and a lovely terrace surrounded by jasmine, wysteria and grape vine. There's also a host of raised borders and topiary.

If it's city living you're looking for, but with a tucked away oasis at its heart, this ticks lots of boxes.

Kemble Mill, Cirencester

This place in the countryside is a former mill, right on the banks of the River Thames. The gardens include a swimming pool and meadow, no less, as well as a very long driveway and impressive entry gates - perfect for pretending you're lord of the manor. The river runs peacefully alongside the house and there are 14 acres of ground in all. The gardens also feature a big kitchen garden space, with potential for lots of growing, and wide stretches of lawns to play in too. The carefully maintained gardens feature majestic magnolias and carefully pruned topiary. A classic of the English country garden genre.

Price: £2,950,000

While this house isn't as old as the others on this list, its garden is definitely not one to overlook. A 1970s detached home, which has been extensively refurbished recently, the garden has also been hand designed and includes a beautiful meadow garden, a vegetable garden and a greenhouse. In fact, the home's owner is a Chelsea Flower Show gold medal winner and designed the garden herself. Mandy Buckland has won gold at RHS Chelsea, and Best Small Garden at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show. Excellent gardening credentials!
