Upcoming Events

  • Day Trip by Coach to Kia-Ora Farm and Gardens, Cullompton and National Trust Killerton, Broadclyst

    Kia-Ora Farm’s peaceful ten-acre garden encompasses lawns, lakes and ponds, which, together with extensively-planted borders, a bog garden and mature trees, provide an environment in which nature thrives.

    Famous for its rare trees and shrubs, the garden at National Trust Killerton provides year-round interest. Beside the house, The Admiral’s Lawn is bordered by tender perennials whilst the Terrace Garden includes herbaceous flowering beds and obelisks for annual climbers. In the formal garden, a memorial to Sir Thomas Acland marks his favourite spot overlooking the Devonshire countryside.

    The booking form is available to download here or in hard copy, upon request, from the organiser.

  • Self-drive Visit to Trebartha, near Launceston

    We last enjoyed a visit to Trebartha in 2015 when many changes had taken place, such as the installation of a new hydro-electric plant and the large-scale removal of Rhododendron ponticum. Several years later and the area is gloriously settled. 

    Trebartha is located on the eastern side of Bodmin Moor and its gardens offer both natural and man-made features together with many fine views. Spanning 18 hectares, there is plenty to explore. This will be a full day visit so do bring a picnic lunch!

    Our group will divide into two for different guided walks in the morning and afternoon to view the ponds, cascades and terraces, and we shall stop to admire the beautifully-designed garden at Lemarne that is situated within the estate, en route.
