A small hidden community garden.
Aug 2018
Small but well set out with a winding path going around which leads to a cafe. We were the only people there at the time of our visit so quiet. No parking on site but public parking behind the pub on the opposite side of the main road.

The garden is lovely, so much to see in such a tiny space. There are memorials of all kinds, features sponsored in memory of family, and "fairies" hidden around the garden. A delight.

A hidden gem
Jul 2018 • Friends
This little garden is out of sight behind the front street. There is a café and you can buy healthy plants at a reasonable price. The man who looks after the garden and sells the plants is friendly and helpful.

A lovely place at Xmas
Dec 2017 • Friends
Visited the garden in the week that Santa Claus was coming on the Saturday. In the evening the garden comes to light with all the colourful lights and Xmas features. The cafe was serving lovely soup, sandwiches and cakes to warm the hearts of all the young visitors. Thoroughly enjoyable evening for all the families and young children who attended.
