Situated in the heart of the beautiful Roseland Peninsula Poppy Cottage Garden covers about one acre full of colour for all year - round interest. Planted as a series of rooms, which are small gardens in themselves, it is brimming with bulbs, herbaceous, grasses, shrubs and even exotics, mainly colour themed, and with plenty of places to sit and enjoy a cup of tea and a piece of home made cake.
There is also a small orchard with unusual ducks and chickens, and a small nursery area with a wide range of herbaceous plants for sale.
Dogs on leads are very welcome.
