The garden at the Gite is about 2000 square metres in area, having originally been rough pasture. The previous owners planted a mixed hedgerow along the roadside with a number of invasive plants, for good measure. Presently, it is reasonably level and possible to walk along mown access paths between wilder areas. However, it may not be passable for wheelchair users and there are numerous mole holes and tussocks underfoot, as well as a few ground nests for bumblebees and other insects.
There are a number of attractive flowers throughout the season and there are several shady spots, welcome in the hot days of summer. Our intention is to increase the number and distribution of flowering plants and climbers and maybe add seating areas and pathways. Of course, that aim may take a couple of years! There are numerous existing photos displayed on our Twitter and Facebook pages.

We have collected a few photos from Spring, Summer and Autumn over the last couple of years – not a compendium but just to illustrate what you might expect to see when you visit.
