Admission: £5 per adult on the gate, to include entry to both gardens.
Description: A group comprising two very different gardens with access to each other along a short footpath. Spindrift: Spindrift hosts a series of very imaginative, beautiful gardens, which begin on the flat and gently lead downhill. The gardens have evolved since the sixties and include an extremely productive kitchen garden with 38 kinds of vegetables and 23 types of fruit, a terrace of more than 190 varieties of Hostas, a Monet-styled area and many water features. A pond and waterfall leads down into a magical dell. There is something at every turn, mature planting, established herbaceous borders and a multitude of tulips in pots.
Downfield: This well cultivated garden of approximately one acre is constructed on two levels. There is a formal front and back lawn on a shallow slope with a wild patch set above a landscaped dell designed to resemble a dry river bed. An attractive double ‘stairway’ set in to the hillside leads down to this shady area which is a haven of peace.
