Holme Lacy,
Nr. Hereford,


Shipley Gardens surround a 17th Century Wye Valley homestead standing upon the site of previous dwellings that since Roman times have administered the adjacent ford and former ferry. The Gardens created during the last 40 years, are set within 30 acres of mixed environmental habitats as Garden Rooms moulded into the base of the escarpment next to the flood plain of the valley floor. There are unique atmospheric Tea Rooms and Garden rooms of surprise and informality with lecterns of whimsical information. A home to many hundreds of temperate climate wild plants that intermix and jostle with cultivated varieties amid structures of rare and interesting ornamental trees and shrubs. The gardens are managed as a home for birds; insects; butterflies and small mammals. Gardens of tranquility, humour and learning within a setting of scenic splendour.

Dogs welcome on a lead only.
