Claridge House

An established 2 acre woodland garden with a variety of specimen trees and a woodland walk. Two wildflower meadows as well as more formal beds, with many benches to stop for a minute and enjoy. We are as sustainable as possible, using compost created from the Retreat food waste and no pesticides to support nature. We have beehives, bats, hedgehogs and butterflies. Our natural pond has dragonflies, mayflies and newts.

About Claridge House

The majority of trees are TPO and impressively large. We are planting more indigenous trees as and when the older ones need to be felled. We actively support nature as much as possible and our gardens reflect this – we may not have the most pristine lawns but everything is to promote as much nature as possible

For by arrangement visits tea & cake maybe possible on request.
