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.

A retail plant nursery specializes in rare and unusual plants and the café restaurant serves beautiful food to match the surroundings.

It promises to be a fantastic day summer day out so please come and show your support. All funds raised will go to the British Red Cross.

Please note Larch Cottage Nurseries  will be open twice this year. First event will be on 25 July 2019 and the second one on 12 September 2019.
