The original vicarage in the village is a sublime trinity of charming heritage home, colourful cottage garden and creative arts. The garden largely embodies a traditional and classical aesthetic with historic plants and trees having been preserved, the crowning glory being 160 year old oaks. New plants and revised garden layouts have been introduced that are stylistically appropriate and historically sympathetic. It is an artist’s garden where plants can be finely illustrated and painted at each stage of their growth.
