Recording of Our Pinsla adventure: from woodland wilderness to rural idyll with Claire Woodbine


An extra chance to watch this online talk. Once purchased you will receive a link to access the recording via email.



38 years ago Claire and her husband purchased a Cornish cottage in a wild woodland setting. This is the story of their transformation of the cottage’s surroundings into a secluded, romantic haven, where their garden is full of interesting planting and characterful features but has not lost the naturalness of the original setting. For many years they ran a successful plant nursery, today they concentrate on the garden.
