The Dorothy Clive Garden is well worth a visit at all times of the year. We generally visit in May when the rhododendrons are in flower in the northern end of the garden ( the Quarry garden) but the southern more open part is lovely at the moment, with alliums, foxgloves, geraniums and many varied flowers in bloom. One problem they are having is clearing out perennial; weeds, but this only seemed to have affected a small area.
The garden is on a slope and some parts are steeper than others but there is wheelchair access to some extent. The lower part of the garden has a large pool in it with gravelled paths and steps leading upward from it. There are many species of trees in the garden and we saw damsel flies and robins and a chaffinch today.
There are tea rooms at the top of the slope near the entrance to the Quarry and they also have a good gift shop and sell plants.. Worth a visit.
