Stillingfleet Lodge is a late 18th Century farmhouse surrounded by a series of contrasting gardens. Each garden is packed with texture and foliage densely planted for ease of maintenance based on cottage garden principles.
A woodland walk leads to a wildlife pond planted for natural effect and further to a wildflower meadow.Long herbaceous borders lead back to the house. The garden is home to several varieties of rare poultry and is full of birds and butterflies. Enjoy the tranquillity of this beautiful garden from the many seats around the garden.
OTHER THINGS TO SEE & DO
A visit is enhanced by coffee and home made cakes in the cafe followed by browsing in the extensive plant nursery where you can buy the plants you have admired in the garden. We also run a series of workshops throughout the year, details of which are on our website.
