Our gardens and grounds are as beautiful and as varied as our interiors

House-&-Garden

In front of the farmhouse is a delightful large, walled garden,  enclosing cottage garden borders. Enjoy afternoon tea on the arbour or simply  sit on the lawn and watch the butterflies drinking nectar or listen to the bird  song.  Sit under the holly tree in the scented garden, on a warm summers  evening, and breathe in the heady fragrance of roses, honeysuckle and  jasmine.

We have twice won The Amber Valley “Best Kept” competition for most  decorative hotel/guest house in the area, and in addition to the walled garden,  we have re-planted the old orchard with a variety of fruit trees including  apple, pear, plum, gooseberry and blackcurrant. Here you will find our trio of  Kune Kune pigs, Wilma, Betty and Pebbles. Why not tempt them out of their cosy ‘pigloo’ with a fallen apple from the orchard or a left over peice of toast from breakfast.

Another feature, extremely popular with our guests, the Koi pond, is situated  by the entrance to the farmhouse, and contains several large colourful  fish.  Alongside the pond is a series of stone trough cascades, upon  which float delicate waterlillies. These troughs also provide  accommodation for a large family of common newts.
