Bere Mill Garden

The ethos at Bere Mill is to let nature come into the garden.  The garden sits comfortably within the landscape, complementing its surroundings.

The garden’s design and  balance is heavily influenced by the great gardens of Japan and includes mediterranean, traditional English herbaceous and bog planting, as well as  orchards and riverside marginals. There are modern sculptures by Robert Muir and David Nash and occasional ephemeral works by Andy Goldsworthy.

The distinction between the  seasons is emphasised by the diversity of planting, creating very different pictures and areas of interest throughout the year.

The garden is open five days per year for the National Garden Scheme and throughout the year for gardening parties and groups.
