The Flower Garden
The aromatic flower garden in the front of the house is a lovely place to sit. The swing chair by the pond is a favourite spot to watch dragonflies and butterflies. Pick your own herbs from our herb spiral for cooking or herbal tea.
The Fruit Orchards
We have a large variety of organic fruit trees: oranges, lemons, grapefruit, figs, apples, pears, apricots, peaches, strawberry guavas, feijoas, pomegranates, cherries and plums. Guests are welcome to pick their own fruit. Freshly squeezed orange juice is very popular from January to March.
The Bamboo Grove
This is an amazing and unique part of our garden. Planted by an expert Permaculturalist in the 1990s, it now extends down the river, along our boundary. It feels like Nature’s cathedral. A wonderful place to meditate or simply wander through. If you follow the paths down to the end of the garden, through the oak tree grove, you will see a small bridge to a special place with giant bamboos and pomegranates. Here there is a secluded hideaway to sit in peace and contemplation by the river.
Beyond the fruit orchards, next to the bamboo grove is the pond. Gather your own walnuts in the Autumn or sit under the canopy of our special oak tree by the firepit.
The meadow changes through the seasons, bursting into life in Spring, with wave after wave of wild flowers. Find your own favourite spot and discover many different trees, bushes and flowers.
