Stone Lane is a five acre woodlands garden on the edge of Dartmoor national park near to Chagford in Devon. There are over 1000 birch and alder trees in the woodlands and is a well kept area. Great to come up here and getaway.

Stone Lane gardens is an unexpected delight. After walking through a small birch plantation and farm you enter the sculpture gardens and a series of unusual, beautiful and downright odd encounters ensue. As you wander round the lovely garden, among the plants and trees and...More

This place is a brilliant small arboretum, with the added attraction of sculptures dotted about. There are also geese and chickens. If you love small trees especially with lovely bark you'll love this place
