When I first started gardening I was given copy of Margery Fish's book by an elderly friend and I have wanted to visit East Lambrook Manor ever since. We loved the garden with its 'rooms' and changes in height and scale. The tearoom was reasonable,...More

At last, inspiration from an at first inexperienced amateur, who developed a busy but low-key and lovely style, without teams of paid gardeners, landscape architects or otherwise expert advice.

A large cottage garden in the Somerset countryside. There are several divisions of garden, all colourful and inviting lots of busy insects. Lovely tea room with reasonably priced drinks and cake

It is a lovely English cottage garden, which when looked at in that light, it is not overly small, but from the leaflet we had, it led us to believe it was larger than it is! You can wander the small paths at will around...More
