Shipley Gardens, Gardens Holme Lacy, Herefordshire - England where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


Holme Lacy Herefordshire England
Shipley Gardens surround a 17th century Wye Valley Homestead standing upon the site of previous dwellings that since Roman times have administered the adjacent ford and former ferry. The Gardens created during the last 40 years by the Author & Landscape Architect - Bob Macadie, are set within 30 acres of mixed environmental habitats as a magical structure of garden rooms moulded into the base of the escarpment next to the flood plain of the valley floor. There are unique atmospheric Tea Rooms and Garden rooms of surprise and informality with lecterns of whimsical information. A home to many hundreds of labelled temperate climate wild plants that intermix and jostle with cultivated varieties amid structures of rare and interesting ornamental trees and shrubs. The gardens are managed as a home for birds; insects; butterflies and small mammals. Gardens of tranquillity; humour and learning within a setting of scenic grandeur.
