    Hidden on the outskirts of Lyme Regis is a special garden. It's a
    magical site that faces South overlooking wonderful views across the
    bay and out to sea. The garden is made up of a series of rooms,
    starting with abundant herbaceous borders, and a pretty pond at the
    top. Winding down the hillside past an artist's studio you will enter
    a circular garden that is planted with vibrant hot colours. Through a
    beach hedge the garden takes you past many flowering specimen trees
    including a beautiful Fox Glove tree (Paulownia), Cornus and flowering
    Cherry and old large magnolias. Beyond this is a white garden and a vegetable parterre.
    Further on is a pretty summer house to sit in with views overt the bay
    and below this lies a bog garden with wonderful tree ferns, hostas and
    bamboo, over hanging this are huge specimen magnolias. The sound of
    the sea can often be heard against the pebbles on the beach from this
    spot. This is a garden full of surprises and hidden delights.
    Unfortunately because of the slopes there is no wheelchair access.
