Perfect combination of flowers and wildlife

Cornish Cottage Garden

Situated behind the original Sir Alan Dalton Suite, the Cornish Cottage Garden contains many perennials backed with shrubs – a real cottage garden combination of herbaceous, bulbs, shrubs, trees, ferns and climbers. Colour plays an important part in gardens and the beds have been planted with this in mind. Spot the statues around the Cottage Garden.

There are two water features, the smaller pond often home to rare newts which can breed safely. Bordering the pond are plants that enjoy a damp environment including deep red astilbes, pale iris and hostas.

Don’t miss:
  • Spring Scent – seek out the fernery, just off the cottage garden, which has two trees of daphne that fill the air with a delightful, overpowering scent. There are plenty of seats enticing visitors to sit and contemplate upon the peaceful nature of the surroundings.
  • Summer colour – Discover the water feature with it’s deep purple iris and pure white zantedescdias.
