The Original Garden Visitor's Guide

Burrow Farm Gardens

East Devon’s Secret Garden is a beautiful and secluded 13-acre garden with many unusual trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants.

A thatched stone summerhouse looks towards a lake and ancient oak woodland under planted with rhododendrons, azaleas and other woodland plants, a photographers dream. There is a bog garden created within an old Roman quarry. Azaleas flourish in the garden and Azalea Glade is a particularly tranquil and enchanted area of the garden.

The more formal Millennium garden features colour themed planting with a rill running through the centre into a formal pond. Particularly stunning later in the year is Grasses Garden which features Asters and ornamental grasses waving gently above the sunken path.

The wild flower meadow and wildlife ponds are a haven to dragon flies, bees and butterflies. The garden is carefully designed to provide interest throughout the year with early spring interest and superb autumn colour.
