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.
