The Gardens

The Gardens are Craig’s domain. A labour of love since 2001. From very humble beginnings, the gardens have grown from a small patch to about four acres of loveliness.

With gardens within gardens, they stretch from the formal to the wild, from the eclectic to the down right eccentric.The gardens attract many visitors under the National Garden Scheme, with over 700 visitors in 2017 and over 600 in 2018 (despite terrible Spring weather and an unlucky choice of Summer dates).

There is so much to see, whether you are an enthusiastic gardener or you simply enjoy wandering around gardens. With sculptures, ponds, a viewing platform, a parterre garden, man-made mounds, a cherry blossom orchard, a huge veggie garden, an Acer walk, a rose garden, a glass house, a garden room, a cutting garden and so much more.

We love to share the gardens and make them available to all guests who choose to stay in The Stripy Bothy and Barn or The Enclosure at Woodlands Farm and to those having events during the day in the Barns.
