The Secret Garden of Cerney House

Published on October 15th 2018
Cerney Garden has been described as the real-life ‘Secret Garden’. It has endless enchanting corners to investigate bringing out a captivated childlike energy in everyone that visits the walled gardens.
Different parts of the garden create intimacy. There are areas devoted to scent, a medicinal herb garden and a heritage vegetable garden to name a few. All through, the garden is interspersed with old varieties of roses.

Leaving the walled garden, perennial borders lead down to a pond and natural woodland with some interesting trees along the way like the uncommon Paulownia Tree.
Head Gardener, Sylvia has worked in this captivating garden for over 20 years. In the Candide audio tour, Sylvia describes all seasons of the garden; the winter flowers alongside spring roses. Whatever time of year you visit, you’ll hear about something of interest.

Remember if you’re visiting a garden this week you can check if there is an audio tour in the Places section of the Candide App to guide you around.
