You don't say if it was fragrant or not - the only one I know that looks a little like this is Helen Traubel, but it is very fragrant, and I think you'd have noticed that. Other one that's similar is Royal Highness, but again its very fragrant, and neither of these look exactly like the one in your photo though they're similar.

Yes it was fragrant but I wouldn't say very fragrant ; it was the beautiful colour that really attracted me.

What we need here is one of our garden centre crew members, like Nicky or Stevebuk - they might recognise it if its a popular newish one.

I have always wanted to visit Audley End lovely house only seen it from a distance. What were the gardens like does it have an elizabethan one?

We went because my wife wanted to do some painting but when we arrived the sun disappeared and it became quite cool so we just walked around the gardens. I love the landscaping with the River Cam running through it and the vistas of mature trees including some of the oldest and most enormous trees I have ever seen. There is a parterre garden behind the house but I specially enjoyed the Old Walled Kitchen Garden. It's enormous and is a sort of history lesson on apple and fruit growing , with many old varieties ,all espalier or cordon trained and with a mind-boggling number of varieties being grown. All well-labelled too. There are also sections of herbaceous borders which of course were past their best today but this rose was sitting on its own in one of the beds. It didn't look very old.

Oooh, mmmmmmmm...just breathe in that smell! We used to have a peach-coloured rose, smelt heavenly all the time...ahh.

Probably take a while, but if you type 'rose' or something more specific like 'peach rose' in Google and click on 'images', you should find a variety which is either close to this or an exact match.
