My Garden and My Favourite Gardens to Visit
At Hillcrest Cottage the soil conditions are completely different. The garden is very well drained and drought resistent plants thrive in the south facing aspect. Peonies and Japanese anemones, roses, fuchia, foxgloves, aquilegia, lavender, hardy geraniums, rosemary and poppies grow in abundance at the cottage. The front garden at Hillcrest is a lovely place to be.
Gardens I like to visit
Parcevall Hall in Whafedale - my absolute favourite
In addition to the nursery, the growing beds and the glass houses is an enchanting garden walk. Nothing formal here, instead pathways and yew arches that lead from one fabulously planted area to the next.
Less than an hour from both Pry House Farm and Hillcrest Cottage, a visit to Eggleston Hall Gardens and the Court House Cafe is a super day out for all garden lovers.
Let's be honest, the whole of Upper Swaledale is every gardener's dream.
Our traditional hay meadows produce a show of flowers worthy of Chelsea Gold.
