Redcroft is a mature walled garden surrounding an attractive Arts and Crafts house. It is a hidden haven off a busy road with a variety of different features and habitats: old shrubberies, an orchard, a rockery, a pond, and a large lawn with contrasting longer grass. It is well maintained with many clipped shrubs and some cloud pruning. Early May is very colourful with rhododendrons and many other flowering shrubs and wall plants, and the greenhouse is full of tender plants. There will be tulips in pots and many other spring bulbs. Children and buggies are very welcome and there will be plenty of activities. We hope older children will enjoy our treehouse.

Innerwick, next door to Redcroft, is in the main a late Georgian home with a garden that surrounds the house. The owners like a tailored and structured garden and box has been planted to border the house. Flowering shrubs are to be found in some of the beds, but the terrace is bordered with roses, hydrangeas and box, with pots to add colour and variety. There is a large lawn where children can enjoy a bouncy castle and swings are to be found hanging from the horse chestnut in the front garden.
