Sandleford Place

A four-acre plantswoman's garden developed over 33 years and surrounding a 16th century former mill and granary. There are thousands of spring bulbs (snowdrops, crocuses and daffodils) plus hellebores and a variety of scented plants for early visitors. There are also different 'rooms' of mixed and herbaceous borders with many unusual plants to be seen later in the year. A wildflower meadow flanked by a long border runs down to the River Enborne. Telephone 01635 40726 or email to arrange a visit.
