This very private garden is not overlooked by any other houses. Shrubs, perennials and climbers with mature trees make for a densely planted interesting garden, with very distinct areas that merge subtly together when walking round. The woodland planting area has a pond that is full of life, and is a great place to be when the sun is too hot. This contrasts with the formal area of garden with clipped topiary, statues and clean lines. The garden is full of unusual plants many of which are for sale. Open for NGS each year.
