This magical and very special 20 acre private garden with three lakes is set in a valley tucked away in North Devon only 4 miles from Barnstaple.

Created by Dr Jimmy Smart VMH in the late 1950’s, this exquisite garden boasts an impressive collection of plants, including astilbes, rhododendrons, azaleas, and hydrangeas, all arranged in a picturesque landscape that evokes a sense of serenity and harmony.
