South Wood Farm
South Wood Farm was designed by the renowned Arne Maynard around a seventeenth century thatched farmhouse. This country garden in the Blackdown Hills exemplifies how contemporary design can be integrated into a traditional setting.
Head Gardener Will Smithson will be our guide and will escort guests around a collection of garden rooms combined to create an unforgettable sense of place.
These include a walled courtyard garden which has a mix of clipped yew topiaries, rose domes and rich herbaceous borders, a yew and Osmanthus knot garden combined with yew topiaries in the back courtyard, a kitchen garden of raised beds with step-over pears, fruit cages, lean to greenhouse, stone orchard, and numerous wildflower meadows.
Rarely open to the public this garden is a real treat!
