Stobo Japanese Water Garden

Home Farm, Stobo EH45 8NX
Hugh and Georgina Seymour
T:01721 760245 stobo.home.farm@gmail.com
This is a mature, secluded woodland garden and is dominated by its water feature — a 60-foot waterfall. The water adds to the tranquillity of the garden throughout the year. In the spring, rhododendrons and azaleas provide a show of colour and scent. In the autumn, acers and cherries provide a riot of vivid colours while the Cercidiphyllum leaves have the aroma of burnt sugar. There are still many facets from the original Japanese garden in place which include lanterns, a tea house, humpback bridges, stepping stones as well as specialist trees and shrubs of Japanese origin. Limited disabled access due to gravel paths and steps.

Directions: Off the B712. (Peebles/Broughton road) via Stobo Castle entrance.
