Ancient maps of this seventeenth century farmhouse showed extensive walled gardens, a pond and a well, but they were long gone by the time the current owner purchased the property – replaced by concrete and rubble, and filled with old washing machines and scrap metal. Over the last twenty years, much effort has gone into removing all the waste and replenishing and reviving the soil. Area by area we have redesigned and constructed a beautiful working garden, with vegetables, meadow, water features, topiary and bountiful planting. Mature hedges separate and define areas, with many secret spaces and paths to discover.
The garden has been featured in many publications and has been opened as part of the NGS Yellow Book open gardens event.
