Groups love the intimate settings and beautiful grounds of PHS Meadowbrook Farm. Meandering pathways lead through the exquisite gardens designed by the late J. Liddon Pennock, Jr. whose floral designs graced weddings at the White House. The home, designed in the English Cotswold style by architect Robert McGoodwin features a series of beautifully decorated garden rooms and patios. The Meadowbrook gardens have been featured in books and magazines, including Architectural Digest, House and Garden, House Beautiful, and Town and Country. The gardens provide an outstanding example of the use of plants and flowers in a residential setting and provide inspiration for the retail greenhouses and nursery. Changing with seasons, Meadowbrook Farm is a destination for every plant enthusiast. In 2004, Meadowbrook became an affiliate of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. Guests are lead on a tour of the world-renowned gardens. Notable features include pools and fountains, topiary and espalier plants, colorful plantings of seasonal flowers, and statuary and structures collected from around the world. Tours include entry to the Pennock’s house, where you are guided through the reception hall, dining room, living room, card room, and glassroom, followed by a guided walk through the gardens.
All tours must be scheduled a week in advance with the office manager, Karen Tyler (firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-887-5900).
