This two-acre country garden has been restored and developed in recent years. It now features herbaceous and shrub borders, a formal rose garden with swags and a wildflower area. As well as a natural wildlife pond and stream in the orchard, there is recently expanded planting, a potager with vegetables and flowers for picking.

It also includes wood and metal sculptures, and some bespoke sculptures and seasonal vegetables may also be on sale. 
The gardens also house rare breeds of chickens such as cream Legbar, Maran and Welsummer. Balwen sheep and Tamworth pigs stay in the field next to the garden. 

The house dates from 1650 and was originally three cottages, now converted into one house. The garden was developed by the current owners with the adjacent field including a farm pond being incorporated in later years.
