Explore hard-to-find quiet spots in urban jungles, ultimate wilderness hideouts, the world's best mindfulness and meditation retreats, and ancient centers of spiritual succor and artistic solace - perfect for whether you want to find yourself or get completely lost.

The cottage garden's abundant, informal style is rooted in Victorian dreams of a perfect country life, but has found new expressions from the Arts and Crafts movement to the present day. This book showcases many cottage gardens both famous and obscure, including writer Thomas Hardy's cottage in Dorset; the flower-filled cottage garden created at Sissinghurst, Kent, by Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson; Beatrix Potter's Cumbrian home, Hill Top, and the picturesque Alfriston Clergy House in East Sussex. Practical advice on creating your own cottage garden is also offered, including key plants and techniques.

With climbing roses, bright hollyhocks, pathways edged with honeysuckle, blossom-filled orchards, and wildflower meadows, this is the perfect book to capture the idyllic British country garden and a wonderful companion for all cottage-garden enthusiasts.
