NATURE’S COUNTRY GARDEN AN ENVIRONMENTAL EXPERIENCE
NEW & EXCITING VISITOR ATTRACTION
Enjoy natures country garden in a peaceful and tranquil setting by following the flower trails around the valley. Soak up the flora and fauna, butterflies, birds and the flower trials.
Spot the birdlife and insects as you pass the lakes, wander into the ancient wood and through the hazel nut groves, and then experience the olde Gloucestershire apple orchard.
Enjoy the stunning hill top viewing point and end up in the Sensory Garden to enjoy the scents, sound and touch.
The Park and its Farm do not use any chemicals or fertiliser. This enhances the insect life and is good for birds and other wildlife.
The Park has a strong focus on its cottage and sensory gardens as well as the old Gloucestershire Apple and Plumb Orchard. Other extensive planting of daffodil and tulips around the park produces not only great flowers around the Park, but also attracts insect life. A lot of planting is done for bees and insects, and there is a bee keepers section that operates to maximise the interaction between bees and the flowers.
In the Spring large numbers of tadpoles can be seen around the edges of the lakes and pools. A bird feeding station operates in the garden area and is regularly visited by a range of birds including Blue Tits, Wood Peckers, Black Birds, Thrushes and many more.
