The garden surrounds Little House covering approximately 1/3 acre. The objective has been to make as much space for planting as possible by creating narrow paths for access and minimising open lawn. We have created a number of small features with a view to maximum variety. These include mini-meadow, sensory garden, ponds & bog garden, mini-woodland areas, “dump”, raised bed vegetable area, auricula theatre, rhododendron & azalea bed, folly, alpine house, wild flower areas (including substantial stinging nettle plantings!) and, last but not least, a large number of plants for sale representing off-sets and self-sown seedlings from our garden.
Little House is believed to have been built in 1692 -
