Thank you for your kind comments, do come and visit us earlier in the spring another year, the amount of blooms out then is spectacular!

Some interesting and unusual plants dotted around a well marked route through the garden. Not a garden for someone who wsnts tidy edged and flowers borders. The tree ferns are magnificent. Simple tearoom for lunch and tea.
