Marwood Hill Garden is located in a steep valley in North Devon, and contains much to surprise and delight both enthusiastic gardeners and casual visitors. From the moment the first snowdrops poke their little noses through in spring there is so much to see throughout the year until the rich autumnal tints and shiny fat berries of autumn.
The magnificicent display of blossom from the massed camellias and rhododendrons is followed by a stream of colour in the bog gardens, as carpets of primulas and iris in all the colour of the rainbow burst forth. The National Collection of Astilbes follows in a foamy symphoney of pastel hues and hydrangeas on the hillside. We garden with wildlife always in our minds and providing habitats for them is extremely important. Tucked away around the gardens are piles of branches and mounds of leaves home to lots of lovely bugs and beasts. Kingfishers are regular visitors to the lake and the areas of rough grass provides both food and hibernating sites for the young of many butterflies and moths. Use the menu on the right to explore the features of garden, and read a letter from Dr John Snowdon, the owner, welcoming you to the Garden.
