Gardens Open

It takes a generous person to open their garden to the public for the enjoyment of others. Here lists about 300 gardens open for visiting, some year-round, others by appointment, and be sure to phone ahead.

Coolaught Gardens


This country farmhouse 2.5 acre garden has borders which blend old favourites and new introductions in an informal atmosphere. Paths lead you to the front garden, rose pergola, laburnum archway enhanced with roses and clematis, a richly under-planted orchard, Egyptian garden and finally a woodland garden with many rare trees and shrubs. In spring the lawn becomes a crocus carpet, originally planted over 80 years ago, a tribute to the history of this garden cultivated by four generations of the Deacon family over the past 110 years.
