Wild Garden

Tucked away at the back of the Barn lies the area, a little smaller than a football pitch, known as the Wild Garden. Created as a haven for wildlife, a place for quiet contemplation and a learning resource for visiting groups, there's always something to enjoy here whatever the season.

Just turn to your right as you approach the Barn's front door, follow the signs all the way round to the back of the Barn and just walk in through the large gate. Lots of time, dedication and effort from a group of dedicated volunteers goes into making this Wild Garden a place to come and sit out, enjoy and relax in. It is a great place for all ages.

There are lots of things to see and do in the Wild Garden as a stroll around will reveal the myriad activities of birds and insects and less obvious animals like moles, all busy doing things, mainly concerned with feeding. Anyone can come along and join our team of 'Wild Gardeners' as there is always lots to do and just like them, you’ll soon be captivated by the rural atmosphere and lovely surroundings.
