    East Devon’s Secret Garden is a beautiful and secluded 13-acre garden with many unusual trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants. A thatched stone summerhouse looks towards a lake and ancient oak woodland underplanted with rhododendrons, azaleas and other woodland plants, a photographers dream. There is a bog garden created within an old Roman quarry with Candelabra Primula, Gunnera and stunning luminous yellow Skunk Cabbage (Lysichitum americanum). Azaleas flourish in the garden and Azalea Glade is a particularly tranquil and enchanted area of the garden.

    The more formal Millennium garden features colour themed planting with a rill running through the centre into a formal pond.

    Created in 2010 to celebrate 50 years since the garden was started, The Anniversary Garden features ornamental grasses waving gently above the sunken path. A perfusion of perennials makes a stunning display with pink, blue and purple as the theme. Particularly stunning later in the year.
    Take a walk through the wild flower meadow to the view point and enjoy the extensive views of rolling Devon hills.

    The garden is carefully designed to provide interest right through the year with early spring interest through to superb autumn colour. Once you have walked around the garden you can enjoy a light lunch or Devon cream tea in the picturesque tea room. There is also an extensive nursery featuring many of the plants that you will see in the garden and a gift shop selling garden related gifts, unusual home accessories and much more.
