Enter the garden and you are worlds away from the local landscape for here there are many gardens within the whole including a new Walled Garden, Rose Garden, Woodland Garden, Mediterranean Garden and a stunning Desert inspired by the landscape of Arizona. These areas are connected by magical avenues and areas of informal planting with some places allowed to be wildlife friendly which includes a stunning Corn Field that contains the corn field weeds of yesteryear and has been known to move visitors to tears. Wild Flower meadows lead down to ponds full to bursting with the sights and sounds of nature giving way to rolling lawns all enclosed by tall sheltering trees and hedges for because of its coastal situation this is an inward looking garden. But, the views out are both stunning and amusing, a port hole cut in the hedge allows tantalizing glimpses of the Happisburgh lighthouse one mile away whilst other highlights are the views of both St. Mary’s churches at East Ruston and Happisburgh. Overall there is a feeling that this garden is exceedingly well designed; there is incredible use of colour, an exuberance of planting making it a very special experience, this garden has that certain je nais se quoi that is sadly lacking in most modern gardens today. There is a well equipped tea room serving delicious locally produced refreshments and a nursery selling many of the rare and unusual plants found growing in the garden. « less

When the tide comes in, the beach is transformed into a harbour, with the entrance channel suddenly busy with visiting yachts, fishing boats setting out for the day or returning with their catch, local small boats going out to fish as well as clouds of small sailing boats racing or cruising within the harbour. The golden sands are backed by colourful beach huts which have been the subject of many a painting and postcard. The popular Beach Cafe nearby is perfect for refreshments during your visit. « less
