Welcome to ‘The Garden House’ owned and administered by the Fortescue Garden Trust, an independent charity. Discover one of the most romantic gardens in England – lift your spirits, gain ideas or simply relax!
Many thanks to Luke Curno, resident of Buckland Monachorum, who is about to embark on a film course at Plymouth College of Art and was kind enough to do the following short film on The Garden House…let us know what you think!.
Being a media student Luke is keen to promote himself to local organisations/businesses around West Devon.
Explore a beautiful garden steeped in history, set in a tranquil Devon valley – a source of pure joy and inspiration. The garden is several gardens in one, and its 10 acres glory in a huge and diverse plant collection – nearly 6,000 plant varieties to admire. Outstanding examples of naturalistic planting can be found at the Acer Glade, Wildflower and Bulb Meadows and Cottage Garden. New for 2015 is the Summer Garden with its swathes of richly coloured perennials. The Jubilee Arboretum with its lake, bridges and tumbling water provides yet another dimension.
Discover stunning vistas and hidden treasures around every corner in this plantsman’s paradise!
Enjoy great food in the Tearoom and select from a wide range of quality plants in Plant Sales … and children will love the ‘Find the Animal Trail’!
