The Garden of the Wind

The gardens are at 600 feet and have to endure strong winds (hence the name) and wet in winter. The garden is designed to complement the views over the Black Mountains with Skirrid in the East, Hatterrall ridge to the South and Black Hill to the West. They have been in development for 20 years. There is sculpture throughout and places to sit and enjoy the views and the tranquillity of the place.

The gardens are set around an old stone built farmhouse and barn. In recent years the farmhouse has been linked by a bridge to an adjoining building which received two RIBA awards for its architecture in 2019.

See our website for current garden developments.
