Lewis Cottage 16th Century Garden
represents a wonderful combination of relaxed planting schemes and formal borders. Its winding walkways, woods and absolutely glorious selection of unusual trees and plants have been inspired by the gardening styles of Gertrude Jekyll and Beth Chatto. Built in the 16th century by French Huguenots, this splendid one-acre woodland garden has expanded over the last twenty years to its current four-acre size.
The garden has featured on Pippa Quelch BBC Radio Devon show and West Country TV Open All Flowers series.
Devon Life and ‘The Garden’ RHS magazine has featured Lewis Cottage garden.
Garden plants will be available for sale on both days.
NGS National Gardens Scheme – Gardens Open for Charity – has raised more than £45 million for nursing and caring charities (since 1927).
