The yew and beech hedges and various topiary shapes, made from evergreen yew and box, make it an ideal garden to photograph in snow. The sheep in the neighbouring snow covered field also adds to the winter scene. Mark and Julie Coley have lived at The Old Rectory since 1973 and over the years have together created this wonderful garden from little more than a field. Areas of the garden include a formal vegetable garden or potager, a wildflower meadow, woodland area and mixed herbaceous borders near the house. The Silver Birches with their gleaming white barks bring life to the garden in the winter months. Other trees giving structure to the garden are the old Yews, Oak, Beech, Horse Chestnuts and a fifty foot Tulip tree planted by Julie over forty years ago from a small sapling. In summer the beds around the house are filled with Salvias, Dahlias, Old fashioned Roses and annuals including Zinnias, Cosmos and Nicotianas, all grown from seed by Julie. A highlight of autumn is the carpet of Cyclamen hederifolium under the old yew tree. The garden is open with the National Garden Scheme.
