A closer look
Wyndcliffe Court is a Grade II listed Arts and Crafts house just outside Chepstow in Monmouthshire designed by Sir Eric Francis and built for Charles Clay in 1922. Avray Tipping was involved with the garden design and landscaping, working in conjunction with the architect. Francis and Tipping were used to collaborating, for Francis was the architect of two of Tipping’s own houses. Wyndcliffe is described by Pevsner as ‘relaxed and sophisticated’ where house and garden sit perfectly together. The garden, with its characterful yew topiary, sun-warmed stone walls, formal terracing, ponds and bowling-green lawn have remained unchanged. This is a beautiful garden to be enjoyed.
