Gardens of North Devon

No matter what time of year or season you visit, the gardens of North Devon offer spectacular seas of colour! From our base in Bideford, we visit RHS Rosemoor, where hints of summer await around every corner, and Hartland Abbey, where you can stroll through the woodland which are carpeted with wildflowers that lead to the four secret 18th century Walled Gardens.
