Further details:The garden is about 1/2 acres and was started over 25 years ago. The first part was to create several levels to create 2 lawns with breathtaking views over the Marshwood Vale to Pilsdon Pen and Lewsdon Hill. We have seating areas on the top lawn to relax and enjoy the views and the garden with space for a picnic !. The lawns and planting areas were then set out to include a waterfall, and sump which is home to Newts, waterboatmen, dragon fliesand water nympth lavae and frogs(in season)& A Tree House. A small fountain made of Devon Rustic Greats greets you at the entrance. The Borders and surrounding areas are a mixture of perennials, annuals, shrubs, bulbs and flowering climbers and trees. together with an alpine Rockery set round the lawn. Visitors by appointment are welcome, bring a picnic, enjoy the views!
