One needs to have sturdy feet to visit this garden which drifts down the hill but it is well worth the effort. There are many twists and turns and around every corner is a new fantasy. The garden of a potter with artistic flair. Park in the street.

A garden of rooms. Don’t stop at the front gate. There is quite a surprise around the back. A lovely water feature, a big vegetable garden, fruit trees and grapes and hens, with plenty of colour in perennials and shrubs.

This garden is a special little gem. Small but exquisite in detail. An excellent example of bulk planting using limited but special plants all carefully planned in composition. A walk beside the Stream which will light up in the evening. A good sized vegetable garden and hens. All on a small section.

A passion for gardening is evident. Go down the driveway to a semi-formal front garden. Roses abound for the enthusiast. The sweeping back garden blends trees, seating areas and cool garden nooks to relax.
