Garden of the Year Award 2023 winners announced

by | 15 Nov 23 | Garden Design, News

The winners of Garden of the Year Award 2023 have been announced by Historic Houses, at an event celebrating the not-for-profit’s 50th Anniversary National AGM in London.

Glenarm Castle Walled Garden, County Antrim in Northern Ireland was voted the winner in a public vote sponsored by Christie’s.

The garden, which dates back to the 1820s, has been restored and replanted by Randal and Aurora Antrim, with the help of garden designer Catherine FitzGerald, to reimagine its original purpose of providing seasonal produce.

Randal and Aurora Antrim, owners and current custodians of Glenarm Castle describe the win as “incredible” after originally embarking on the project over 20 years ago when there “wasn’t much more than crumbling walls and a few grazing sheep.”

Now the garden’s ‘room’ structure design offers a space for reflection and tranquility, encompassed by thousands of tulips and other bulbs when the gardens open in spring and a collection of hostas, peonies and roses in June.

While Manor House, Bledlow was awarded the Judges’ Choice this year, featuring a sculpture garden, an orchard and a water garden.
