Overview

Under the new ownership of the artist, Dugald Stark and his wife, Adel, the gardens continue to be open for visitors. A new studio displaying Dugald's paintings is a new attraction. The historic gardens were planted to provide inspirational summer colour and abundance. Interesting features include restored teak Victorian greenhouses, a giant pergola and an extensive bamboo grove. The gardens are flat and accessible to wheelchairs.

Exceptional meal with family and friends. Small dining room beautifully decorated with pleasant staff. The meal was delicious with home made ice cream to finish it off. Would not hesitate to go again.

Shame that this garden is becoming neglected and shabby in places.Could be so much better.They need to continue the restoration process.The glasshouses that were restored need maintenance to preserve them......could be a wonderful attraction with a little TLC and crying out for a tearoom !More

Thanks for your honest review. If you met me when you were visiting, you will remember that I am wheelchair bound and that gardening to an immaculate standard is an impossibility. I keep the gardens to act as an inspiration and resource for my painting....More

As a keen gardener we searched for places of interest for our mini break in West Devon. Found this amazing gem, down a small country lane. We were greeted with written information about the garden and planting. Would thoroughly recommend a visit.

This lovely garden is reached down a fairly rough road, but is well worth the visit. The owner of the property is very happy to discuss his garden. It is very sheltered and there is very little bare soil for weeds to get a foothold....More

The garden is really beautiful! It has been set out by a brilliant plantsman during the renovation of the site, with a mix of shrubs and perennials now maturing nicely. The current owner gave us a friendly welcome, and chatted about the history and the...More
