Ball Copse Hall has one of the most breathtaking views in the county. The enormous sky stretches over the Quantock and Polden hills with Brent Knoll to the side.
It is understandable as to why it was chosen as a military hospital in the war as the hope was that the views would heal everything! This garden is full of unusual plants with many having travelled from New Zealand, including a huge kiwi tree. There is a rare “crinkle – crankle” Walled Garden which provides the warmer atmosphere these plants need. The wildlife pond is home to Great Crested Newts and bee hives nestle under the beech trees.
Afternoon tea will be served on the terrace outside the Edwardian house. Your host will also be here to answer any questions you may have about some of the amazing plants, and will point out the roses that the local deer prune regularly!
Dogs are welcome, but must be kept on a lead.
