The 3 acre garden started with an average of only 3 inches of top soil. And this was on top of a chalk base. Through hard work and artist vision, the owners have made this a lovely and charming garden. The paths lead to isolated...More

This was one of the most enjoyable garden visits our group had during our 20+ garden visit to southwest England. You must meet the owners, Judith and Harvey, in order to understand how they created this garden out of worse than nothing! As experienced travelers...More
