When you go on holiday, it’s your time to switch off but it doesn’t mean you have to leave your pastimes behind. If you like food, a requirement would be to have a good kitchen, likewise gardening. For the green-fingered and lovers of gardens and all things horticulture, treat yourself to a holiday rental with a stunning garden and all you’ll have to do is to enjoy it.

Aspects Holidays has a selection of holiday properties with lush gardens, all ready for your next getaway. All the houses that this specialist company lists are in the luxury bracket, so you can be rest assured that there’ll be comfortable beds and bathrooms, well equipped kitchens and so on. But it’s the outside space that we’re concentrating here.
