Received a really warm welcome when we arrived and what a lovely garden to wander around. Not a plant expert, but enjoyed all the different aspects, and the ladies are friendly and approachable if you have any questions. Also, interesting sculptures throughout. Will definitely visit...More

The planting, whilst beautifully co-ordinated, is wild and free giving a totally different slant on the proverbial English country cottage garden. The effect is stunning and we spent a peaceful few hours wandering around before enjoying a cup of coffee and some home made cake...More

Even on a rainy day the garden was a pleasure to visit. Loved the areas set aside for wildlife which were perfectly blended in with the more formal parts of the garden. Liked the ethos of organic growing. So refreshing not to see slug pellets...More

Lovingly maintained and created with small honesty-based shop/cafe and some items for sale. Limited opening times so check before visiting.

I can't honestly recall seeing any, nor any notices, but owner was lovely and friendly, I'd suggest phone ahead and ask. Would need a lead, so many wild areas they are preserving beautifully.
