Marle Place Garden

A seventeenth century house with a 1970s garden made on the site of old farm buildings and run in conjunction with a nursery. There is a walled garden, rockery, Victorian gazebo and woodland walk. The Woodland walk follows the stream through old woods and modern plantings, around two large ponds and across a bridge over the bog garden. Careful habitat management has encouraged a multitude of wild flora and fauna.

Head Gardener's Comment

The gardens have been designed as a combination of hedged rooms and tree lined avenues set on a south east slope ending in a woodland planted with specimen trees bordered by a stream. In spring there are the flowering trees and bulbs, later, masses of old fashioned roses, and borders filled with herbaceous and annual plants and unusual shrubs, all give scent and colour throughout the year.
