Open to the public in aid of Somerset Wildlife Trust
A one-acre plantsman's garden situated 600ft above sea level at the eastern end of the Brendon Hills in West Somerset. It has been developed to blend sympathetically with the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside and to encourage wildlife.
Mike and Jenny have constructed a small wildlife pond to encourage frogs and toads into the garden – they once counted 35 frogs in the pond! Some areas of grass are left to seed for the wildlife and in spring wild primroses abound. They’ve built a native hedge-bank planted with wild flowers, and have a large bird population, including many thrushes. In summer the garden is a haven for butterflies.
