About the garden

Owned by
Sue Beesley

This 1.5-acre garden is a peaceful haven for visitors, yet only minutes from Junction 11 on the M56. Wide, meandering borders showcase planting combinations for different growing conditions including a gravel garden, open sunny borders, orchard meadow and a shade garden. 

In 2022, part of the garden was significantly enhanced with a new walled productive garden, pergola walk through the exotic garden and a much-admired moongate.

The garden is strongly influenced by the owner's interest in wildlife and the environment. Nectar-rich and seed-bearing plants are abundant, no chemical pesticides are used and the garden is almost never watered.

Please note: this garden is partially accessible.
