Westonbury Mill Gardens
The lovely Gardens at Wetonbury Mill have been featured on BBC 2 - see why
Set amidst large trees and amongst a tangle of streams and ponds and looking out to wonderful views across Herefordshire, Westonbury Mill is the perfect situation for a garden. This has helped it to attract huge attention in the media. On the TV it has featured twice on BBC Gardeners World, most recently in July 2016, and on Escape to the Country, Shed of the Year and Midlands News. In print it has featured in Country Life, World of Interiors and in most other national gardening magazines.
The planting is lush and exotic ranging from small vividly-coloured primulas and irises to a 'tunnel' where gigantic leaves of gunnera tower over your head. The layout is punctuated with fantastic follies. There is a dome of 5000 coloured bottles, sparkling inside like a cathedral window. An old water wheel drives a bucket chain which carries water to the top of a stone tower then a gush of water shoots from ghoulish gargoyles. There is an oak half-timbered tower housing the world's largest water-powered cuckoo clock which sings on the hour (featured on national television) and a number of other garden entertainments for the whole family.
Everywhere the garden opens up slowly so that as you go round you will find constant new interest. There are plenty of benches to relax and enjoy the scene.
2017 - Gardens open from 1 April - see Westonbury Mill website for details Teas and plant sales. Most areas accessible for wheelchairs.
