Book Description

30 Jun 2006
The world-famous Abbey House Gardens are set on the side of an ancient hilltop in the centre of the historic city of Malmesbury in Wiltshire, right next to Malmesbury Abbey, which forms a dramatic backdrop to the beautiful landscape created by Ian and Barbara Pollard. But if you are looking for the nonnaturists stereotypical view of a nudist you will not find it in Ian. It is quite simply that he prefers to wear as little as possible, and is comfortable enough in his own skin to be unconcerned if it is seen by others. This book follows a television stint as The Naked Gardeners, live on the This Morning programme, and more recent television and press coverage internationally. This is the story of the creation of an extraordinary garden that has been painstakingly and lovingly brought to life over the past ten years. It will appeal to both experienced and aspiring gardeners everywhere.

An amazing insight of an inspirational garden brought together into a fascinating journey of hard work and determination. Full of superb colour photographs. A garden that I will be visiting soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Naked but NOT nasty 3 Aug 2006
This story of an inspirational couple who have transformed the surroundings of an old Abbey House into a wonderful garden is well worth telling. I visit this garden each time I am in Malmesbury visiting family and never cease to wonder at the tremendous effects in the garden - I speak as a gardening Philistine! This garden is something else and should be seen if you can possibly make it there.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's 2014 Folks!!! 25 Aug 2014
Turned away because the voucher was not in printed format, you really have got to be kidding, ever heard of barcodes or scanners? I've visited several other attractions in the area and have never been turned away, the voucher has a unique voucher code and a barcode.

The customer service was none existent, shame on you Abbey House Gardens you really let wonderful Malmesbury down.
