Poppy Cottage has recently changed hands so as longstanding fans we were keen to meet the new owners. It is such a special gem of a garden and we are sure it is still in good hands. Wishing them good luck and much success.

Beautiful private gardens, enjoyed by us all (aged 11, 58 and 79). Wonderful colours, very vibrant. Car parking spaces on the grass verge opposite the garden for about 12 cars. Took loads of photos.
