As part of the NGS, we are joining with the farm to open our gardens, hay meadows and woodland to help raise money for a variety of charities. These are two different, south-facing cottage gardens overlooking the Woodland valley. The first surrounds an 18th Century farmhouse and barns, with herbaceous borders bursting with cottage garden favourites, fragrant rambling roses, productive kitchen garden, summerhouse, stoop garden and stunning crinodendrons. The second garden nestles behind the adjacent cottage. On different levels, this garden with its meandering bark paths and steps is planted with mature flowering shrubs, azaleas, rhododendrons, herb beds and an herbaceous border with informal, naturalistic planting, which creates a sense of seclusion and peace with stunning views across the valley from the terrace.
