What an absolute delight! This is the type of garden one might dream of creating around an old farmhouse. The Cook Family have done wonders! Vanessa is so welcoming. And so knowledgeable. A handy information sheet guides you through the surprisingly diverse elements of the...More

These are delightful and interesting gardens to visit although it has obviously taken a lot of hard work to make them look so natural and inviting. Thought has been given to the layout including seating at various points for those of us who need to...More

Beautiful personal garden around the owner's house. A range of garden areas from formal to informal woodland. Interesting and attractive planting with seasonally changing colour. The setting is very peaceful and the cafe does good locally made cake. The fly through on their website gives...More

Lovely gardens and good nursery to buy plants. Tea and cake very good. Well worth the trip and we’ll go again to see it.

If you are looking for a garden where the plants all stand to attention and the gravel paths are all neatly hoed, this is not for you. If you enjoy plants allowed to be blousy and exuberant then this is definitely for you. Surprises round...More

What a find! Stillingfleet Lodge delights the plant hunter and garden designer alike. The garden is beautifully well cared for and relaxed. There's terrific variety in each "room". At the end of May we found a meadow (with flowering native orchids and other rarities), orchard,...More

My daughter and I had a lovely day out last Wednesday. We were "blown away" by the informality of the garden. The wild flowers were stunning and the roses were beautiful. The cafe was excellent and nicely appointed. There was a wide selection of good...More

I can't honestly recall seeing any, nor any notices, but owner was lovely and friendly, I'd suggest phone ahead and ask. Would need a lead, so many wild areas they are preserving beautifully.
