your kind of garden?
Hill House is a small, independent nursery at Landscove, Devon. Driving the last three miles to get there isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, it’s a single track lane with pull-ins in case you’re unlucky and meet a tractor. if you’re the passenger and don’t have to concentrate on the road, the views are spectacular. The road from the Devon Expressway takes you up Love Lane, Whistley Hill, Chuley Hill and Cabbage Hill!
Hill House is really worth the drive, it’s the prettiest place, with unusual plants, very friendly people and the best cakes, all made on the premises. They don’t mind you wandering around the garden,
On a sunny day it’s a peaceful spot for lunch, cream tea (cream first, then jam of course) or some of that cake. The borders are densely planted, if you fall for something, you may find it in the nursery. There are narrow paths that open up to little surprises.
One of the paths leads to St Michael’s church.
Which has a Victorian broached spire and is very pretty inside
and has a Grade 11 listed, slate -roofed, buttressed lychgate.
For a last look down another path.
I’ll show you the nursery soon, I think you’ll love all the reclaimed items it has.
This is a scheduled post, be back soon.

Just lovely, Gilly.
I think you already know that it is MY kind of garden. Not awfully keen on the single track lanes as it seems to be usually me who has to do the reversing and I hate reversing in my car!
Really worth the jaunt to see this – very beautiful – and who wouldn’t want to go up Whistley Hill?
Beautiful captures of this special garden!
Such a lovely garden and church, Gilly. Love that bell. 🙂
What a lovely place, Gilly! I think it has to be on my list for next time I come down to Devon! I love finds like this!
Gilly, you and your camera had a stunning outing … great series of shots!
I’d love to sit and have chai tea and a small treat in this garden.
A very peaceful place to be. Great photos … 😎
Looks heavenly to me 😀
My sort of garden too, Gilly. I love the names you have to navigate to get there and the pathways once you arrive. That second flower, close-up, is w wonderful colour.
Beautiful garden .. I would love it, but loads of work. Love those dahlias ..
Nice of you to leave us something to look at while you are away. I hope that you are well and enjoying yourself. This looks like a kind of place to have loads of fun.
What a gorgeous garden. The combo of tea and flowers cannot be beat! Love the secret pathways…
Really a lovely garden – I especially like the raindrops or dewdrops on the leaves and flowers.
