Hillcrest is a 5-acre garden with so many special places within it that everyone can find a perfect spot to sit and contemplate. 

The lawn is the most formal part of the garden but is perfect for cartwheels! It has incredible far reaching views overlooking the Somerset Levels.  You can see Glastonbury Tor and Burrow Mump but Hillcrest has its own standing stone if you would like something even closer.

There is a very large wild flower meadow leading down to an enormous wildlife pond full of dragonflies. There are bee hives to visit too with a bee expert on hand to answer any questions you may have about these essential visitors to our gardens.  

Charles and Charlotte say, “Make of the garden as it suits you. The Garden is about peace, wildlife, flowers and trees and working as one with the view - a semi-managed haven."

Charlotte’s delicious tea and cakes will be served in the courtyard by the barn.
