The garden will be open from 2pm-5pm on the first and third Sundays of June, July, August and September

The garden is set in the wonderful countryside of the Welsh border above Tintern, countryside which has recently been seen worldwide in the television series ‘Sex Education,’ while also being the inspiration of Wordsworth’s great poem ‘Tintern Abbey’.

There are two acres of ornamental garden and two acres of woodland. A favourite part with visitors and gardeners wanting a break from looking at weeds is the dramatic reflecting pool.

The local landscape of rolling hills is reflected in the sinuous hedges that lead to the pool and provide the perfect backdrop for other planting schemes. Anne has a great interest in the history of the local landscape and has incorporated this into the garden design, in particular a large parterre of grasses in a pattern of box hedges based on the local Tithe Map of 1842.
