Description:1½-acre part-walled country garden set around C18 former vicarage. Several defined areas have been created by hedges, each with its own theme and linked by intricate cobbled pathways. Beautiful setting with fine views across to Farleton Fell. Traditional herbaceous borders, ponds, woodland and meadow planting provide year round interest. Large collections of auricula, primulas and snowdrops
Adjoining specialist nursery growing a wide range of interesting and unusual herbaceous perennials. Home made jams and chutneys for sale
Further details:The garden at Summerdale House is a fine example of what 15 years hard work and dedication along with a love of plants and traditional English garden design can achieve. Strong structural elements provide the framework for lush planting to create year round interest in the garden.
Alongside the garden we have developed a small nursery growing a wide range of interesting and unusual herbaceous perennials
