gardens in devon

Devon is one of Britain's National Parks full of beauty and romance. Not only does it include Dartmoor and part of Exmoor it has 2 stunning coastlines. The north coast can be rough and wild but the south coast is much more gentle but both have lovely sandy beaches.

There are many historic houses and gardens to visit in the county including the RHS Rosemoor Garden, Killerton House, and our favourite Coleton Fishacre - A beautiful 24 acre garden created by Rupert and Lady Dorothy D'Olyly Carte (Gilbert and Sullivan) in the 1920s which lies in a stream fed valley above the scenic Devon Coast. We have gardens near Exeter, Plymouth and Barnstaple and other county towns.
