North Devon: Gardens

This week I am going to reblog a post I wrote on my other blog Travel Words, about three lovely gardens in North Devon. Hartland Abbey, Marwood Hill and another RHS garden near Torrington called Rosemoor. All three are beautiful. Photos from late April.

Of course it wouldn’t be a holiday for me without visiting a garden or two. And North Devon has several, including one in Clovelly itself – Clovelly Court Gardens (entrance  is included in the price to the village). Unfortunately the gardens closed at 4 p.m. so we were too late this time as we were still in the village. We did drive over to Marwood Hill Garden just north of Barnstaple where you will find beautiful gardens and lakes and a wonderful café which serves great cakes – we had a clotted cream tea with ginger scones!
