Brook Cottage Garden
Brook Cottage Garden
A lovely hillside garden surrounding a 17th-century cottage. Here you will find a scree garden, herbaceous borders arranged with colour themes, a water garden, and flowering shrubs and trees.

The gardens extend to 4 acres, laid out on a sloping west-facing hillside. The gardens were designed by avid gardener Kathleen Hodges and her husband over the course of 35 years.

One feature at Brook Cottage is the large collection of clematis; over 50 different varieties flourish here. There is a pond area, bog garden, colourful herbaceous borders, and waterside areas. The snowdrop display in spring is worth a special visit.

We've been unable to verify Brook Cottage opening details. The garden website no longer seems to be operating. It would be wise to check with local tourist information centres before making a trip.
