North Devon is a haven for garden lovers. Within a short drive from Sandy Cove, you’ll find some of the top gardens in Devon.
Nestled within encircling woodlands, it’s a garden whose varied character reflects the history of the site. Highly ornamental gardens with shrubs, roses, perennials & bulbs with surrounding woodlands.
This magical & very special 20 acre private garden with three lakes is set in a valley tucked away. A wonderful haven to relax & enjoy the impressive collections of plants, shrubs & trees and experience the views & peaceful atmosphere.
These gardens are Grade II listed in the National Register of Historic Parks & Gardens. They feature Italianate terraces, a working kitchen garden & a permaculture garden.
Over 2,700 acres to explore, from riverside rambles to steep hill walking there is something for everyone. This Victorian garden is some way from the house. It has a fountain pool with cast iron herons to protect the fish from the birds.
Truly a garden for all seasons, there is such a variety of things to see. This was included in Jim Gardiner’s top ten woodland gardens to visit in 2015.
