This peaceful two acre garden set around a Grade II Georgian manor house is home to the volunteer-led, educational charity Bell House, which provides creative learning for people of all ages and backgrounds. The walled garden has vegetable beds, fruit trees, a meadow, bees and a raised pond. The house garden includes flower beds, a meadow, lawn, a natural pond, fruit arch and woodland paths. The gardens are managed by volunteers to support wildlife, encourage biodiversity and promote gardening as an activity for physical and mental well-being.
