St Patrick's House

Description

A May or June visit to St Patrick's House garden will be rewarded with a stunning display of rhododendrons, azaleas, heathers and shrubs. Created over a fifty year period, the grounds of this five acre garden slope down to the River Clyde. Natural springs have been harnessed to create water features, a large contemporary pond with an arbour begs  you to sit a while. Paths wind between beds of varied plantings and perennials, rockeries, woodland plants all add to the magic of this unexpected gem.
