The owners, David and Frances Hampson, were runners up in the 2017 Gardeners World Competition, ‘Small Garden Category’. The 10 metre x 11 metres space features a wide selection of plants. There are lush plantings of banana, tree ferns, hostas, clematis, bamboos and colourful herbaceous perennials, plus a series of raised beds and oak structures.

Take a stroll down the attractive narrow slate chipping pathways and pause at the water feature which provides a calming atmosphere. Home-made teas.
