Saw this on gardeners world and decided to visit. The garden wasn't as big as I thought it would be , but when wandering around the layout and planting made it feel huge. It was crammed with flowers and sort of dis-organised, yet it felt...More

A very pleasant perennials garden. Well planted and well maintained. Probably better later in the season when grasses are at their best. Adjoining nursery has good quality plants well displayed. Helpful staff.

Home grown variety of plants suitable for the local area. Open between spring and autumn. Helpful advice and service. This is not a garden centre with café. Gets right down to the plants themselves. A hidden gem and credit to the owners.
