The garden is now closed for the winter. We open again from 1 April 2014 everyday until 30 September.
The three and a half acre garden is laid out around a tangle of streams and ponds behind an 18th-century corn mill and has splendid views to hills and open country in all directions. It is bursting with the colours and textures of exuberant waterside planting while the spinneys and drier areas provide a variety of plant interest. There are lots of paths and hidden corners to explore and plenty of benches to relax on. In addition to buildings and features which punctuate the planting there are several follies made to amuse you – and in the tradition of garden follies, they may even play a few gentle tricks on you!
Both the garden and its follies have won a lot of attention from the national press, the gardening 'glossies', and in the book Follies of Europe. Although the garden is closed now for the winter you can visit us by watching some films made last summer and before- see Local Info and Press.
There is a cafe open all day serving home-cooked meals and teas. It has plenty of space inside, or you can sit by the stream and admire the view.
We have greatly improved the plant sales area and now have a large range of perennials for all types of soil, generally specialising in moisture lovers, all potted from the garden.
You will find us in the beautiful Welsh Marches close to the historic half-timbered village of Pembridge. Come and visit us; you are sure to receive a warm welcome.
