An unusual 20 acre woodland garden built in an unlikely place, on and around an exposed rocky ridge. The layout of the garden works with the natural features of the landscape rather than against them, with numerous paths, hedges and shelter belts creating clearly defined spaces that enable a large collection of plants and trees to thrive. It has extensive collections of rhododendrons and bamboos. The ridge offers long views of the surrounding countryside in the 'borrowed landscape' tradition of Japanese gardens. The garden didn't exist a dozen years ago and is very much a work in progress.
