About Bridge End Cottage

This carefully maintained, country garden has many different areas of interest and views over surrounding countryside. There are formal perennial borders with shrubs and herbaceous flowers and a number of mature trees. A pond fills with winter rains, and streams with planted banks run through the garden if there has been sufficient rain. In addition to some top fruit trees, a soft fruit cage, and small herb parterre, a focus of spring and summer activity is the vegetable plot, planted with greenhouse grown seedlings. There is a small fernery in pots in the shade.

Outside the original perimeter of the garden are adjacent fields, one of which was sown with 16 Kgs of native, wild flower mix in May 2013. It flowered profusely with annuals the first summer and thereafter has had a wonderful variety of flowers which come and go through the summer months although suffered in the very dry April and the rest of summer 2022.
The Head Gardener (owner) has Level 3 RHS Diploma in Horticulture and is very happy to lead conducted tours of the garden, describe the successes and failures, and offer gardening tips and Latin names if so requested. She is very keen to garden sustainably.

Teas are served in an easily accessible outside room. U3A, WI, horticultural and gardening societies are particularly welcome to come on arranged visits.
