When Lee and Pamela Wheeler returned from New Zealand in 1999 with the specific intention of creating a garden, they brought their inspiration with them and have created a unique garden with one part of the garden melding seamlessly into its neighbouring parts. With open vistas of Wenlock Edge, the surrounding countryside and the majestic oak trees the garden is now so well established, the once bear paddocks have become an oasis of peace and a green haven of tranquillity.

There are plenty of seats dotted around the garden, so no excuse not to sit and enjoy the peace and tranquility. Visitors can also sit inside or out to enjoy afternoon tea, with home-made cakes on offer. Jams and chutneys made with fruits from the garden are available to buy and the marmalade is also very popular but that’s no surprise as the citrus fruit comes straight from the garden!
