The Tors

 

The Tors

Description

An award winning Victorian garden of just over one acre with a secret woodland garden to the side and an orchard leading off to a wild area at the rear of the house. Many unusual maple trees, hydrangeas and rhododendrons are the main interest of this garden and two fine avenues of Chinese paperbark maples are especially noteworthy. Featured on the 'Beechgrove Garden' for autumn colour in September 2010, but the best time to see this garden is at the end of July or the beginning of August.
The Scotland on Sunday featured the house and garden in an article with many lovely photographs in September 2015. We now have our own website with a link to our Facebook page.
