The Garden

A large peaceful country garden set on different levels with spacious lawns complimenting our old restored villa style home.
Front entrance features a formal garden with box hedging and white roses, for the rest of the garden a section of mixed planting of rhodos. azaleas, roses, specimen trees and flowering plants and fish ponds.
The garden was started in 2002,but the shelter and some trees were set a couple of years earlier..
We try to keep the garden to a good standard.

The Gardener

Hello and Welcome we are your hosts John and Rosemary. You will find us friendly and inviting, we enjoy meeting new people from all walks of life. We have three grown up married children who have blessed us with beautiful grandchildren. Our interests are farming, gardening, sport and handcrafts. Most of our lives we have been dairy farming, but now semi-retired we live on this wonderful scenic property and run dry stock on it. We have very good local knowledge of our surroundings and are only too willing to share in all we know to help you in getting the most out of your stay.
