Visit our pretty village and enjoy our gardens which are wide-ranging and varied, from small cottage plots to glorious established vistas.

A one-acre garden of plant enthusiasts that includes some 80 varieties of mostly native trees and shrubs. New additions include The Grove, home to the same family for over 200 years and Orchard House where visitors can meet the alpacas.

Hop on-and-off mini bus to visit the gardens on the outskirts of the village with ease.
