Pebmarsh Trail

This trail includes a variety of gardens. Snipelands is a stunning two-acre garden in a peaceful setting on the outskirts of Pebmarsh. The drive up to the garden has 36 varieties of rose and a newly planted orchard of 28 apple trees. A large lake is home to ducks, geese and other wild fowl. A traditional walled vegetable plot contains soft fruit bushes, peach and cherry trees. At 8 Mill Lane are herbaceous borders, Mediterranean and woodland gardens, a river bank and a meadow with water features and shrub beds. At 10 Mill Lane are mature shrubs, herbaceous borders and a fern garden under trees. There is a river bank, bog garden and a meadow with Essex hedge. Cricks Farm is an informal, natural garden of approximately one acre, attached to a working farm in a tranquil location. It has colourful borders filled with perennials, a gravel garden and a wooded area, as well as many lilies in containers. Brambles is a cottage garden full of perennials, established shrubs, roses, clematis, wisteria and honeysuckles. This garden has evolved around a growing family. The aim is easy maintenance, so there are many corners to sit and enjoy. There is also a small deck by a pond and a swiming pool. The early Victorian Magnolia House is set in an acre of grounds. It has a lovely walled garden with a huge and spectacular white wisteria over an arbour plus a rhododendron and azalea bed. There is also a small Italian garden with mirrors (creating a trompe l’oeil effect) and a vegetable plot. Outside is a rose and lavender garden and an orchard that leads to a peaceful woodland walk. To enter all the gardens in the trail, buy a map at the village hall. Refreshments, toilets and parking are also available at the village hall.
