An 18th century country house at West Green in Hartley Wintney in Hampshire, England.

Lord McAlpine acquired the lease in 1976 and restored the gardens and added monuments designed by the classical architect Quinlan Terry.
The house was damaged by an IRA bomb attack in 1990 but Lord McAlpine had left the house three weeks previously, at the expiration of his lease.

Marylyn Abbot bought the 99 year lease from the National Trust in 1993. Abbot, the former marketing and tourism manager of Sydney Opera House had previously developed Kennerton Green garden in Australia. The gardens have been developed and now rank in the top 50 gardens in England to visit.

Although not at its best with the late spring as a result of the terrible weather, the gardens are still lovely.
