Poppy Cottage Garden is an inspirational plantsman’s garden set within the Roseland Heritage Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

This delightful cottage garden is about an acre of individual garden rooms with central lawns, colour themed borders, effusive planting and sunny nooks in which to bask. There is a small orchard at the far end of the garden with unusual chickens and miniature ducks.

Planting includes unusual herbaceous plants and bulbs, grasses, shrubs, trees and more tender exotics. We are lucky to be just over a mile from the sea on well-drained soil so can grow a wide range of desirable plants.

Some of the unusual plants grown in the garden are often available for sale.

*New for 2018* the main orchard area and pond is transforming into a home for wildlife, the pond has been planted with native water plants and the orchard will be sown with wildflowers and grasses, as well as a range of bulbs suitable for wildlife.
