A charming and contrasting group of gardens. The Windmill is a previously romantic wilderness of 1½ acres surrounding windmill, now filled with bulbs, perennial beds, pergolas, bog gardens, grass bed and herb bank, secret paths, wild areas, an amazing compost site! - and much more! 3 Cooke Walk is a little gem recently designed with a distinctive oriental character, making the best use of the limited space. Water features, swing seat, bridge and room spaces for both dining and relaxing. 5 The Crescent has large impact cottage-style herbaceous borders that wrap around the house. Interest throughout the year, herbs, unusual perennials and in particular plants for dry sun/shade. Back garden designed to create a 'wow' factor in mid- summer borders.
The Windmill - open for viewing.
