Westonbury Mill Water Garden and Follies image

Westonbury Mill Water Garden and Follies have lush planting and tumbling streams which characterise this peaceful garden with its wonderful surrounding views. Walk round the wild flower meadow, climb the giant spiral mound or relax on a bench by the duck pond to view fantastic follies like the stone tower with its water-spouting gargoyles. Streamside café. Plant nursery.

The 3 ½ acre garden is laid out around a tangle of streams and ponds behind an 18th-century corn mill and has splendid views to hills and open country in all directions. It is bursting with the colours and textures of exuberant waterside planting while the spinneys and dryer areas provide a variety of plant interest. There are lots of paths and hidden corners to explore and plenty of benches to relax on. In addition to buildings and features which punctuate the planting there are several follies made to amuse you – and in the tradition of garden follies, they may even play a few gentle tricks on you!

Both the garden and its follies have won a lot of attention from the national press, the gardening ‘glossies’, and in the book Follies of Europe.
