Golden Amber Gravel at Abbey House Gardens Malmesbury

The breath-taking Abbey House gardens in Wiltshire have been supporters of Breedon’s self-binding gravel for many years.


Situated in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside Abbey House and its 5 acre grounds, set around the River Avon, have been praised as a “most spectacular garden”.

History of the site

Dating back to the 16th century, Abbey House has been extensively renovated to become what you see today.  Privately owned until 1968, the house was then purchased by the Deaconess Community of St. Andrew where it was used as a home for its elderly sisters and guests.  Ian and Barbara Pollard bought the house in 1994 where they totally transformed the grounds and in 1996 they opened the gardens to the public.

Abbey House and gardens today

Today the house and gardens are owned by Whim Hospitality of Texas, likely purchased due to the co-founder Whit Hanks having ancestral links to Malmesbury.  The site proudly boasts the largest rose collection in the UK, with in excess of 2000 different species to enjoy.

The perfect pathways

Our self-binding Breedon Golden Amber gravel has been a favoured choice for many years here.  It compliments the beautiful surroundings with its natural, golden tones perfectly, but also, it stands the test of time.  The gardens welcome thousands of visitors each year and our product has proven to be a durable paving solution. Used throughout the various gardens and on the footpaths alongside the river it really does look stunning in such a setting.
