The garden is partly laid to lawn surrounded by flower beds including a raised ericaceous bed with specimen Japanese Acer, Rhododendron, Azalea and Heathers. The walled vegetable garden is split into 3 rotation beds surrounded by various fruit trees placed around the edges. Kingfishers, heron, damsel flies and the occasional otter can be seen from the river bank and many species of bird (Tits, Woodpeckers, Thrushes, Blackbirds, Robins, Jays) are regular visitors to the garden and the occasional buzzard can be seen overflying the valley.

Location

Midford is a quaint Cotswold village approximately 3 miles (5 km) miles south east of Bath. The Cam and Wellow Brooks merge in Midford to form the Midford Brook, which then flows down to join the River Avon close to the village of Monkton Combe. On the hillside above Midford is Midford Castle a late 18th-century folly castle built in the shape of the ace of clubs. The castle was built in 1775 by Henry Disney Roebuck and provides a regal sight in such wonderful woodland surroundings. To the west of the village is upper Midford. Here in 1995 plans were made to create a new plantation to be known as Millennium wood. In 2000, land between Midford, Southstoke, and Combe Hay was prepared and planted with a variety of native trees and shrubs. This is open to the public all year round and is crossed by several public footpaths. The site overlooks the Cam brook and the restored remains of the Somerset Coal Canal as well as the 40 ft high viaduct built in 1908 that carried the Somerset & Dorset Railway line across the valley To the east of Midford village along the restored canal bed and towpath is Packhorse bridge, now closed to foot traffic but still intact. Further along the towpath is the fully restored Midford Aqueduct. It was the most substantial single structure built during the late 18th century Somerset Coal Canal project and was officially opened in 1803 Midford is one of the starting points for a project by Sustrans (sustainable transport) organisation to link with an existing cycle route to the City of Bath via the Two Tunnels Greenway. The project has re-opened the old Devonshire and Combe Down railway tunnels to make the new link. This provides a unique way of travelling to Bath either by foot or bicycle. There is one public house in the village: the Hope and Anchor which is on the main road leading into the village, adjacent to the railway bridge and cycle path route During the week and on Saturday there is an hourly bus service (the 267) which takes you into Bath in approximately 15 minutes. There is also a limited service on a Sunday. Whilst there are no amenities locally Midford is only a 1 mile drive from Combe Down with its abundance of local shops and supermarket.
