Essentially the garden consists of a magnificent woodland with trees 90ft high, making it seem like a great cathedral within which azaleas, rhododendrons and camellias glow like jewels. Erythronium, trillium and myriads of ferns gow on moss covered slopes. There are glimpses of the sea to the north and of ancient forest to the south. In the Middle Ages this was part of one of the only two deer parks on Exmoor, and the ditch and wall, built to keep the deer in, are still here. The garden is brilliant in spring, rich with roses, clematis and lilies in summer and splendid in autumn colour. It has its own rare quality of peace and enchantment.
A post war garden that celebrated a 50 year anniversary in 1996.
