A 1.5 Acre cottage garden set in a rural location, with plant nursery, wildflower meadow and bluebell woods. Our small tea room serves hot drinks, cakes and ice cream. There are plenty of seats around the garden so do take your time, relax and enjoy the plants and the wildlife. We're open from 10-5 Wed-Sun April to September

Possibly it was too early to visit due to Spring starting late. On the whole I think it was more of a Nursery than a Garden. If anyone would lie to visit it,watch the single lane road leading up to it, especially nervous drivers.

You find this place along a narrow country lane and approach it by a track - you park in a field and walk the short distance into the nursery. A really friendly (but not over friendly!) greeting from the woman at reception. The garden is...More

Good choice of perennials at reasonable prices. Bit limited on other plants though. We liked it would go again. There are gardens (for a small fee) to look around, we didn't as the weather was not too primising, next visit maybe.
