DescriptionWelcome to our "little piece of heaven on earth"
That's what most people say after they've spent a while strolling through our award-winning show gardens and then browsing around the nurseries selecting just the right plants for the right place and marvelling at our superb range of specimen plants which can make any garden look established in double-quick time.
Whether you are an avid gardener of many years or you are just starting out with your first plot, Whitlenge Gardens, nurseries and tea rooms, the home of Creative Landscapes is teaming with ideas.
Take in the sounds of the many water features, from the peaceful ripples of the mill stone bubbler, to the babbling of the beautiful man-made waterfalls, from spouting water lizards to a full 100 foot stream and pond system. Walk the twisted brick pergola lined with fan trained apples and pears which create a beautiful blossom walk in the spring.
Whitlenge has been awarded a Trip Advisor Certificate Of Excellence.
Children enter if you dare the mysterious man made cave complete with atmospheric swirling mists, and something lurking in the depths. You must take the time to walk the unicursal path of the beautiful turf labyrinth, which awards you a 'wish' when you reach the middle, then contemplate the stone circle which is aligned according to the years solstices and equinoxes. Remember to introduce yourself to the Green Man, and then let the kids go wild in the Adventure Playground.
Children can wander the gardens and complete a fun "spot and find" sheet.
NB Parents please be aware there is open water in the Show Gardens.
