We had a cream tea Scones were home made warm and delicious service was fab. They have beautiful flowers for sale too. Didn't have time on this visit to go around the gardens but will do next time

Poppy Cottage has recently changed hands so as longstanding fans we were keen to meet the new owners. It is such a special gem of a garden and we are sure it is still in good hands. Wishing them good luck and much success.

Regrettably this garden has now closed and is up for sale - it was a little out of the way on the Roseland peninsula but that was not the reason for its closure
