A project which has taken five years to complete, this chapel and garden have been a labour of love. Designed and built by owner Peter for his wedding to Jo in 2014, the gardens consist of meandering paths bordered by lush flower beds, a wildflower meadow, an orchard and lawn with a streamleading down to a small lake with the chapel at its head. The chapel and gardens are usually private and open today only as part of a pre-arranged agreement with the British Red Cross. Retail plant nursery nearby.
