Queen Victoria’s holiday home; the walled garden was not designed for culinary use, but there are a variety of Victorian fruit trees and extensive flower borders. However, the 1850s restored glasshouses by Henry Hope are of great interest. Garden recently laid out to plans by Rupert Bowlby.
2009 was the first productive year following the restoration of this 0.6 acre walled garden on the edge of Dartmoor. Now in partnership with Bovey Climate Action (Food Group) who adopted half the garden for local people to grow food communally. There is also an area for a local special needs group. The garden is free, but only open when a group is at work.
Created from scratch in 2008, a paddock behind the village High St is now walled on two sides, one made from heather bales, the other from logs, and is fully productive, catering for the café in the Garden Centre and demonstrating the skills of kitchen gardening to people of all ages. Open every day, no charge.
