“Nothing at Parham is superfluous, nothing unloved. It is a house of magic.”

A Warm Welcome to Parham House & Gardens

Welcome to Parham. It has always been a well-loved family home, and only three families have lived here since its foundation stone was laid in 1577 during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. The Hon. Clive Pearson, my great-grandfather, bought the House and Estate in 1922. He and his wife Alicia found the House and Garden in sad repair, and together they revived and restored both with great sensitivity and care. They opened the House to visitors in 1948. Their work was continued by my great-aunt Veronica Tritton, who inherited Parham, living here until her death in 1993.

Parham’s tranquillity and timeless beauty have changed little over the centuries. Parham House and Gardens are now owned by a Charitable Trust. I have lived here with my family since 1994.

A few seasonal tasks for September:

  • Harvest apples as they become ripe, cup the fruits and if they come away easily, they should be ready
  • Keep your glasshouse clean and free from debris, mould and fungus will thrive in damp conditions
  • Remove lower leaves from tomatoes to enable the light to ripen the fruit and increase air circulation
  • Keep feeding containers, tomatoes, cucumbers, aubergines and chillies to make the most of the remaining summer
  • Collect seed from your borders of perennials and annuals which you want to keep. Dry them on newspaper and store in a brown paper bag
