Gardens & Herbs

Lose yourself to peace and tranquility in our Beautiful Flower & Herb Gardens

Our Award Winning Secret Gardens were designed by Sylvia Phillips, who together with husband Henry, spent many years collecting interesting and unusual pieces such as our own take on Stonehenge – “Sylviahenge”, Teddy Bears Picnic, Henry’s Column, Sculptures and stonework.

There are so many nooks to the vast Garden areas, it’s easy to get carried away to another place, somewhere tranquil and beautiful away from the hussle and bussle of everyday life!

Today; Henry, Libby and Denise work hard to maintain the flower and herb gardens and look after our rescue Donkey – Pegasus, who can be found right at the back of the hotel.

We also have a working herb garden with over 50 different varieties of herbs and edible flowers. These are all used seasonally in our cooking and to dress the fabulous dishes served daily in our Restaurant.

Our vegetable patch and fruit trees keep us well stocked with Beetroot, Potatoes, Beans, Crab Apples, Gooseberries, Blackberries and Raspberries, along with a special Tomato Greenhouse where many interesting and tasty varieties grow!

Our gardens are open all year around so we hope we’ll see you strolling around without a care in the World soon!
