Jason Goodwin and Simon Tiffin set up G&T Garden Tours to share their enthusiasm for the
gardens and landscapes of Dorset and Somerset.
They are dedicated to introducing guests to the stunning landscapes, fabulous food and
produce of this historic and beautiful region of England – as reflected in this article by Sue Gilkes in House & Garden.
Following on the success of their 2023 Earthly paradise tour, Simon and Jason are offering just
three of their unique English garden tours in 2024. In May, June and October 2024, with groups limited to no more than
15 people, they will escort their guests on unforgettable visits to the grounds of grand houses, and some of the most spectacular private gardens in England’s West Country.
G&T provides exclusive access to gardens that are not usually open the public. G&T also
hosts incredible guest speakers, such as photographer Howard Sooley, on how to get the most
from your garden photography, and cider enthusiast, James Crowden, on orchards.
Based in a historic manor house on the Jurassic Coast, guests will enjoy splendid
accommodation, excellent food – and an unforgettable horticultural experience.

Chilcombe is one of my favourite places and I truly love the garden.
No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to that of the garden.
The lure of the garden is dreamlike, primarily about things just beyond our grasp.
The real point of a garden is to increase the value of our lives.
Whenever I arrive in my garden, I Make The Tour. Is this a personal idiosyncrasy, or do all good gardeners do it?
