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.



A natural stream flows through this garden that surrounds the farmhouse and traditional farm buildings. An unusual larch tree makes a striking feature. Herbaceous plants, roses and hydrangeas are in abundance. Other features include a box hedge parterre, an orchard and glasshouse.
