North Devon is a haven for garden lovers
With so many wonderful gardens in North Devon to explore, from woodland wonders to ornamental acres, why not book a stay at The Sandy Cove Hotel and enjoy them all?
Nestled within encircling woodlands, it’s a garden whose varied character reflects the history of the site. Highly ornamental gardens with shrubs, roses, perennials and bulbs with surrounding woodlands.
Marwood Hill Gardens
This magical and very special 20 acre private garden with three lakes is set in a valley tucked away. A wonderful haven to relax and enjoy the impressive collections of plants, shrubs and trees and experience the views and peaceful atmosphere.
These gardens are Grade II listed in the National Register of Historic Parks and Gardens. They feature Italianate terraces, a working kitchen garden and a permaculture garden.
Arlington Court Gardens
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.
Castle Hill Gardens
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.
