    Hidden behind a stunning 16th century thatched cottage is a rare gem with unique views over undulating country side and an ancient village church. Within this enchanting garden is a wondrous concoction of some 215 roses cascading from trees, mingling with clematis and planted throughout, with fragrances and colours that only mother nature can create. Take a wander through our wisteria lined walkway and meander around the island boarders filled simply with a riot of colour. At the bottom of the garden there is an old barn covered in early flowering rambling roses which is home to two characterful miniature Shetland ponies, often seen helping in the garden.

    Enjoy a home-made cake whilst relaxing in one of the peaceful seating areas, some overlooked by a smoking dragon, which was once on display at Hampton Court Garden Show
