An unusual octagonal walled kitchen garden, designed by Capability Brown for John Stuart, 3rd Earl of Bute, former Prime Minister and First Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Successive owners have added numerous heated glasshouses, most notably the magnificent range built by Mackenzie and Moncur for Sir Julius and Lady Wernher. Now sadly dilapidated, it awaits restoration. The garden is the focus of a fascinating restoration project, with courses and talks offered. Talks and tours of the garden can be organised for groups by prior appointment.
Private garden, visitors by appointment. On the banks of the River Tavy, just south of the Lopwell Dam, the gardens once provided produce for Maristow House, formerly the seat of Lord Roborough. 3 acres within the walls with another 2 outside. Two glasshouses awaiting restoration, mushroom house, stores, etc. volunteers sought: firstname.lastname@example.org
Once a country estate, Middleton Hall, now the home of the National Botanic Garden of Wales since 1996. The house has been demolished and part of the park restored; as well as the well known Great Glasshouse there is an unusual early 19th century double-walled garden. The three acre garden has been recreated by dividing into four quadrants, three telling the story of the evolution of flowering plants, the other is a modern kitchen garden.
