The Garden

From the flagstone terrace the full extent of the garden is almost hidden. Walk further along the path and the garden gradually reveals itself. If you are very lucky, at this moment you'll hear the clock strike in the nearby St Michael's Church that forms an imposing backdrop to the scene. Passing terraced beds of spring or summer flowers you'll go through the rose arch and find yourself in a secret garden with its secluded summerhouse 'Pilgrim's Folly', perfect for long, lazy afternoons. And that's where you'll find the cedar hot tub and changing cabin. Don't forget to bring your own towels.

From the highest point of the garden you can look over rooftops to Exmoor.

After a fall of snow the garden becomes a magical place, as shown in our photos.
