BEAUFRONT CASTLE IN NORTHUMBERLAND

Ask Aidan Cuthbert what he thinks of the new roses of today, and you will hear an ear full. Cuthbert is Beaufront's owner, and he believes that the roses are worth fighting the rot and aphid attacks because of their beauty and scents. He began planting these roses in the 60's, never imagining what the gardens would become.

Cuthbert has no use for the modern tea roses. After walking through a door in the wall to reach this two-acre English garden, you will understand. The roses bloom during June and July, and they are stunning.

The turrets and towers of the castle evoke childhood thoughts. Add this to the beauty of this garden, perfection. ENJOY!
