    Snowdrops are always a welcome sight after a cold winter and hellebores and early crocus are the perfect neighbours. Close on their heels follow chionodoxas and daffodils with the charming little faces of sweet primroses and violets peeping at you, especially along our primrose path. There is always a variety of wild flowers such as sweet rocket, campion and cow parsley which compete with cottage garden favourites. In June clematis and roses abound and in our small wild flower meadow moon daises and corn-cockle can be espied. Please note some paths are narrow and steep and can be slippery if wet. Odd pieces of art can be found here and there and in June do look out for the fairies!

    For £1 children and the young in heart are welcome to go on a fairy quiz hunt with small prize for correct answers (help given!)

    June opening tea and cake available.
