    109 Brook Street, a garden of just under an acre, stands at the edge of the attractive village of Wymeswold. Its elevated position at the end of Brook Street provides a beautiful borrowed landscape as you approach the house up a steep drive. The garden was first established in the mid 1960’s and benefits from a number of mature trees. An extensive remodelling has given it many additional features including a rose and clematis patio, a herbaceous border enclosed by yew hedges, a raised bed kitchen garden and an orchard. The formal north side of the garden gives way to sweeping curves on the south side. The ‘wild’ area includes a naturally stocked pond, with wild flower meadow fringe and woodland walk leading to the main lawn with its well-stocked, circular fishpond and mixed borders with a wide variety of plants including a collection of David Austin roses. The hot zone on the sheltered south side of the house has exotic species of plant in raised beds built in a style reminiscent of ‘art deco’ with a splash water feature to cool the air on a very hot day. Water for the garden comes from an extensive rainwater harvesting system that includes 4000 gallons of storage and a variety of watering systems operated by solar power. Feel free to relax and spend some time with us. Tea and cakes will be served and there will be an extensive range of home raised plants for sale.
