The Sights And Smells Of Shaftesbury’s ‘Shangri La’ – Wincombe Park Gardens

Some Shaftesbury residents have no idea that Wincombe Park exists. The Georgian villa sits in a 370-acre estate of farmland, woodland and beautiful gardens overlooking a lake.

Owner Phoebe Fortescue says it’s been described as a sort of ‘Shangri La’, because it is nestled in a valley and it has a very special uplifting feeling.
