Pendower House is a Georgian rectory. Roger Lamb will guide us through its formal herbaceous terrace, cottage garden and orchards to reveal ponds, streams and a 19th century shrub garden.
In contrast, the country garden created by Sue and Roger Paine at Gardens Cottage is relatively new. With imaginative use of colour and planting, and year-round interest, it incorporates a formal garden, long borders, a courtyard garden and a productive kitchen/cutting garden.
