Ivy Croft Garden
The garden started in 1997 and surrounds a cottage with formal beds filled with a wide range of plants. There are paths that lead away from the cottage into less formal areas, set in open grassland. Plantings of willows, grasses, ferns and snowdrops surround the ecological water treatment system and seasonal pond. Mixed borders lead to a young perry pear orchard, a vegetable garden surrounded by trained fruit trees and an embrionic 'natural wood'. Pleached limes screen the car park and partially surround an area of alpines.
Open on Thursdays in February at 9am-4pm, and on the following days, 2pm-5.30pm: Sunday April 22nd Sunday May 27th & Monday 28th Sunday August 5th Also open all year by appointment
