Details

You can find this garden nestled in it’s tranquil and secluded setting on a gentle sunny slope in the heart of the Lower Wye Valley. The ancient wooded slopes of this AONB provide an ever changing backdrop of colour and texture.
This is a site that is steeped in history that has been worked from as far back as Roman times. The garden has been established over the last 40 years and throughout this time it has been managed organically. Abundant herbaceous borders, a pond, woodland areas, an orchard and meadows all provide a rich habitat for wildlife.

A series of sculptures by local artist Gemma Wood have been positioned harmoniously around the garden. Gemma trained as a ceramicist and painter and over the years has developed skills working in such materials as wood and stone. Many of the pieces are made from materials sourced locally.

The sculptures celebrate the creative process as an appreciation of natural forms and cycles. Gemma’s work reflects a life time spent exploring the compelling beauty of the Wye Valley; physically, spiritually and artistically.

Opening details

The garden is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 22th May until the end of September for you to view at your leisure. However if you are group of more than ten people then you can pre arrange a private visit at other times. When you bring a group we can provide a choice of refreshments to enhance your time here. Perhaps you would like to sample our freshly baked cakes and biscuits with a selection of hot drinks. Alternatively you may wish to stroll around the garden on a long summers evening with a glass of cold crisp wine.
The choice is yours…
