                      A modern cottage garden with coherent layers of colour, texture and interest. Centred around a fine 18th C. red sandstone building. A garden with interest all year round.  From Spring bulbs; through the lushness of Summer roses and herbaceous plants galore; to the inherent richness of late perennials and graceful grasses well into late Autumn. Plus a vegetable production area!  A little less than half an acre but packed with plants.

The garden is on a gently sloping site with gravel paths. Some plants for sale.

… as in a traditional cottage garden, there are no big gestures, such as formal hedges or ‘single colour’ borders. Instead there is an endless series of intricately designed ‘little episodes,’ of related colours and tones, or involving different interestingly varied foliage-forms, all of which knit together into a colourful and intriguing patchwork. The idea, as Ian himself puts it, was to create ‘coherent layers of colour, texture and interest.’  Tim Longville, ‘Cumbria Life’ magazine July 2012
