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.



This is a country farmhouse garden established in 2015 on a challenging site. A natural stream flows
through the garden, colourful perennials, shrubs and roses are planted in borders and terraces.
Paths lead to the various features, a mature larch tree, box hedge parterre, orchard and a
glasshouse filled with plants. A polytunnel for vegetables is a new addition.
It is partially accessible by wheelchair. Plants for sale. Tea & coffee served.
