Devon and Cornwall are certainly no strangers to award winning gardens. What makes South West England really special, are the gardens that are not so widely known, like Burrow Farm Gardens for instance. Originally a typical working farm existed here, however one of the gardens creators Mary Benger along with her husband John had other ideas for what was soon to be one of Devon’s biggest hidden gems. Built on 13 acres of what was once a Roman clay quarry, Mary has soley created quite a special domain. Together with their nursery and impromptu Tea Room, the Burrow really did take me by surprise the first time I came to visit. I particularly love the sweeping landscape and rolling lawns, not to mention the amount of varied colours that are on offer here. The Wildflower Meadow, Anniversary Garden, not forgetting the Terrace Garden are just a hive of activity, and as I sat on a bench, in the Anniversary Garden I could of literally sat at peace for hours.- Top 100 Review
