Andrew Loudon is a dry stone walling master craftsman. The centre of the garden is a stone sphere, sitting opposite a negative image of itself, recessed into a slate stone wall. A curved path winds up to a small seat, positioned on a pebble mosaic. All this is surrounded by dense herbaceous planting.

A nostalgic cottage garden, with a country feeling using local materials and simple design, with emphasis on the plants. A real team effort from members of this local village horticultural society, all plants will be grown in members’ gardens and reused by them afterwards.
