Half way along the Azalea Walk as you enter the gardens, if you choose to branch to the right, visitors will find the Woodland Garden. This was created in 2008 following extensive storm damage to an area that was largely scrubland and trees. There is still much to be added but it is a carpet of daffodils, bluebells and lily of the valley in early spring. A feature is the blue cedar (Cedrus Atlantica ‘Glauca’) which was given as a wedding present to the current owners in 2010 to replace a large cedar that had to be felled. Lilacs and Laburnum were planted along the hedge in 2008 and these will soon raise their heads over the yew hedge to mirror the considerably older planting on the other side.
