Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens

An eighteenth century farmhouse with a garden (made in the late 20th century) and a plant nursery. The garden has a cottagey arts and crafts character with compartments and colour themes.

Head Gardener's Comment

Tranquil garden consisting of small enclosures round the C18 farmhouse planted with cottage garden plants. Woodland walk leads to wildlife pond and meadow.Long double herbaceous borders, rare breeds of poultry and a cafe in a converted barn add to an enjoyable visit. Many interesting courses from willow weaving to beekeeping are available
