Broomclose, a stunning Arts and Craft house, has a garden divided into idyllic pockets, from the Camelia Walk to the vegetable garden.

As there is a milder eco-climate here you will find unusual sub tropical trees and plants.  It has been described as “bee heaven” by local beekeepers due to the huge array of bee friendly plants. David is a passionate beekeeper and hence has very happy bees!  He will be around to answer questions you may have about this incredibly important aspect of wildlife conservation. You can then see the bees with their hives in the garden. Broomclose is a garden with a stunning view over the Vale of Porlock and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It is worth a wander along the beach after your visit.

Afternoon tea will be served on the lawn, surrounded by the incredible flower beds with Nicky’s famous cakes made with produce from the garden.

Where: Broomclose, Porlock, Minehead, Somerset TA24 8NU
