One of the best-loved privately owned gardens in England created by the late Margery Fish, celebrated plantswoman and gardening writer. Her natural gift for combining old-fashioned and contemporary plants in a relaxed and informal manner has created a garden of immense beauty and charm. The Grade 1 listed garden is renowned as the premier example of the English cottage garden style and is noted for its specialist collections of snowdrops, hellebores and hardy geraniums.
Visitors can continue to enjoy the gardens while also visiting the famous ‘Margery Fish Plant Nursery’, which remains a place of pilgrimage for keen plant buyers. A specially designed display bed showcases an extensive collection of hardy geraniums in summer or snowdrops in February.
In the centre of the gardens, the 17th century Malthouse houses a cafe serving tea, coffee, local Burrow Hill apple juice and a selection of Aunt Sally’s excellent locally made cakes. The Malthouse is home to the Malthouse Gallery. Exhibitions of paintings, usually by local West Country artists, take place at peak times of the year and paintings and cards can be purchased.
