We would like you to have a truly relaxing time, enjoying the peace and quiet and the seclusion of nearly nine acres of gardens, meadows, woods and of course, the brook. So we invite you to explore and share our beautiful surroundings during your stay.
Brook Farm has a beautiful garden, created by previous owner, Sarah Wint, and we’re staying true to her vision. Sarah was passionate about the benefits of a closer connection with nature, and the links between gardens and well-being. She called it ‘The Heartfelt Garden’ and believed in enjoying Brook Farm for its natural beauty.
It’s not perfect. In fact it can be fairly chaotic, but it is somewhere to enjoy the bounteous beauty of nature in the spring, summer and autumn, while in winter it’s a place for quiet reflection. A beautiful place to just be.
You’ll discover: • The ‘Ride’, edged with lots of apple trees on one side and hardy geraniums in the grass, creating a bejewelled meadow effect – a perfect spot to catch the evening sun or relax with a glass of wine. • The Brook Bank Walk, planted with spring flowers – and ideal for an early morning walk with the dog. • The kitchen garden – with lots of summer fruits, rhubarb, tomatoes, onions, runner beans, peas and courgettes. And the odd grape vine too.
In the winter, enjoy the hellebores and snowdrops; in the spring, swathes of daffodils and tulips; and heading through summer and autumn, the quintessentially English roses and crab apple lawn.
If you want to explore further afield, there are plenty of walks from the door…or visit one of the many beautiful gardens in the area.
