Upcoming Events

  • Self-drive Visit to South Bosent and Penmilder, Liskeard

    Sisters, Adrienne and Trish, are developing South Bosent with wildlife in mind. It comprises several themed gardens, woodland plantings, large mixed borders and a four-acre meadow. Other features include a mini-lake, 25-metre canal pond, waterfall and rill on the terrace, and several plant collections, all designed to provide year-round interest. Along with thousands of planted bulbs throughout the garden, a bluebell wood runs alongside the stream pathway.

    The gently sloping south-facing 2.5-acre garden at Penmilder includes lawns with mature borders, a lily pond with abundant wildlife and natural wooded areas. The apple orchard is particularly pretty in spring with daffodils, bluebells and primroses, whilst numerous acers surround the lawns and terrace. 

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

  • Day Trip by Coach to National Trust Greenway, Galmpton with Ferry Trip on the River Dart

    Enjoy a scenic return boat trip between Dartmouth and Greenway, which Agatha Christie called “the loveliest place in the world” and is now in the care of the National Trust. 

    There will be ample time to explore this much-loved house and productive walled garden with its 120ft-long peach house, vinery, allotment and softly-planted borders, all of which thrive within its protective walls. 

    Pause to relax in the informal garden and enjoy glimpses of the river from its woodland walks.
