This compact family garden, attached to a working farm, has slowly developed over many years. A place for children and animals to play, but also where plants can be given increasingly full rein. Flowers spill over exterior verges, into every corner of the farm buildings, and are even brightening up the N59 roadside.


Open: 1pm – 5pm on 13-14 July, 10-11 Aug
