A very long narrow garden planted with a strong cottage garden influence. Divided into numerous rooms, a meandering path llinks each section creating thriving areas packed with interesting plants and unusual artefacts. The garden is informally planted with mixed herbaceous and shrub borders, beautiful fern collections, and raised beds. The winding path takes you past several water features and secluded seating areas. Once described as a Russian Doll, there is definitely a surprise round every corner.
