Sissinghurst, in the late 16th century the former pig farm had been transformed into a Renaissance courtyard house with no less than 38 fireplaces. It was used as a prison camp during the Seven Years War from 1756-1763. Vita Sackville West and her husband Harold moved to Sissinghurst Castle in 1932. They created the garden with a unique sense of style. I had heard about Sissinghurst and read about Sissinghurst in gardening magazines. Garden rooms were created here.
This was a garden I wanted to experience while in England. I climbed the narrow stairs to see the garden from how Vita saw the garden.
