DAYS OUT: Denmans Gardens

There is something about the garden at Denmans which is quite unlike any other in Britain, for its display is not only to do with flower colour, but foliage form, textures and, of course, as it moves to autumn, with foliage colour as well.

Although the garden is only four acres in size, its layout is such that the visitor enjoys many small areas within the overall, for it is punctuated with pieces of statuary, a well designed pot or a warm sitting corner.

In fact, it is a garden full of ideas to take home, and which can then be interpreted within smaller garden spaces.

Denmans was the garden to a country house, so there is a walled garden containing a recently introduced herb garden, a newly refurbished conservatory- now alive with the chatter of budgerigars, and a larger area for frost-tender plants.

And if that isn’t enough, The Garden Café is available for morning coffee, lunches, afternoon teas and is fully licensed so you can enjoy a glass of wine with your meal.

There is also a gift shop selling a range of exclusive gift items and a beautiful Plant Centre selling over 1,500 varieties of perennials and shrubs.
