  • Over 12 amazing gardens set in the grounds of a gothic rectory. From Italy to Africa the gardens transport you around the world and beyond into a fantasy world. 
  • Whether you are an adult or a child you will be mesmerised with the features and be surprised around every corner of the 3acre garden.
  • The garden is wheel chair friendly and all is accessible.
  • Start your journey through the African jungle taking the tree top walkway. Walk behind the water cascade and enjoy the lush tropical planting. 
  • Visit the incredible Triton pool with its water jets but beware of the rising water. Pass through the pirate garden with its run aground galleon.
  • See the beautiful Italian Piazza incorporating a church and bell tower with pencil cypresses conifers under-planted with lavender.
  • Pass by Toad Hall in the Willow garden before walking through the Gunnera maze. If you find your way out then make sure you do not disturb ‘Edwina’, the resident dragon! 
  • Take a seat in the tranquil Japanese garden with Tea House and trickling tree water lily pool.

Lunch – We will be having lunch in the restaurant and they have requested that we let them know what we will be having. To meet this requirement, we will be sending out a menu and we ask that you send in your meal list to John Sobey and he will pass it on to them, you can do this by phone or Email. You will be paying John for the lunch so bring cash with you. The meal has to be paid for in advance. You could bring a picnic or chance the restaurant.


Numbers – We also need to know who is coming, please let John know if you would like to join us.
