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 over 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 hundreds of visitors each year. 2020 was a tricky year (mild understatement) but Woodlands Farm was the featured garden on the NGS’s opening of its virtual gardens at Easter, with over 20,000 views online. Over the summer the gardens opened weekly to guests who booked tickets online. It proved so successful that, subject to government authorisation, the gardens will open weekly during the Spring of 2021 from the Easter weekend.

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 at Woodlands Farm.

We are getting ready to  open in 2021. Check out our NGS page here.
