Brightwater Garden

Brightwater Gardens, Saxby

This 21st century garden will interest every visitor within its 8 acres - yew hedging and walls enclose magical garden rooms full of roses and herbaceous plants.

Brightwater Gardens - one of the country's youngest snowdrops and winter gardens.

In less than 15 years, 150,000 snowdrops, 40,000 crocus winter irises, and a selection of other bulbs have been planted to create a ¼ mile winter walk leading through the garden and woodland. There are banks of willows, dogwoods and winter flowering shrubs, a grove of gleaming white Himalayan birch and pleached red-twigged limes to delight the visitor. Nearby St. Helen's church attributed to Capability Brown is well worth a visit.

In Spring, Summer and Autumn the naturalistic planting and great views make the garden a wonderful place for garden lovers to visit. The long terrace, pergola, dry and damp gardens lead onto a hillside planted with rarer trees overlooking a winter garden and reflective pond. Paths lead through a woodland, prairie and wildflower meadows.
