The life long home of the self taught gardener E A Bowles. The gardens are home to some of the world’s most unusual plants that fascinated Mr Bowles while he was on his travels. With his famed ‘Lunatic Asylum’ bed, the Victorian Glasshouse and hidden local treasures around every corner, this is really one you don’t want to miss.
