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 stream leading down to a small lake with the chapel at its head.

The chapel and gardens are usually private and open only as part of a pre-arranged agreement with the British Red Cross. A retail plant nursery nearby specializes in rare and unusual plants and the café restaurant serves beautiful food to match the surroundings.

Larch Cottage Nurseries will be open for two days this year: 30 June and 12 September 2018.
