The garden has mixed borders with traditional and exotic plants, vegetable parterre, greenhouse and various water features including a pond.

It is open from 11am until 5pm. Admission is £2.50 for adults and free for children. Homemade teas will be served, plants will be for sale and some of Claire’s art will be on show.
