The garden, which grows roses in June and a wide variety of snowdrops in January and February, is owned by Lyn Miles, president of Four Villages Horticultural Society in Newton Tony.

Lyn’s ‘wilderness paradise’ features rustic arches and gates, flint walls, terraces, and an architectural bridge over the garden’s pond, as well as a wide species of flowers, with snowdrops, pulmonarias and hellebores in the early spring.

The garden also sells snowdrops, in addition to homemade jams, marmalades and chutneys, with refreshments including soups and teas also available.

Entrance to the garden can be booked online or purchased on the day for £4 per adult, with children visiting for free.
