Stonelands House Gardens

 

We have two beautiful and very different main gardens at Stonelands House. Our gardens are always open to our guests.

 

 

The south garden is lit at night until 11pm

 

The south facing garden is approximately 140 feet long x 35 feet wide with ample space for guests to sit or stroll.

 

We encourage the small birds and there are numerous feeders to attract blackbirds, blue tits, finches, wrens and robins.

Red squirrels are harder to find, but do make their way along the boundary fences and climb the surrounding trees.

This is a sanctuary for small wildlife and butterflies and birds visit the garden daily.

 

The listed fir tree is home to a colony of bats and at sundown, they can be seen swooping across the trees.

 

The wild garden is approximately 120 feet x 120 feet with areas here to explore that have been left uncultivated to encourage

small creatures.

 

Dormice live here, undisturbed as are many mature trees within the garden as well as old fallen trees and stumps from a bygone age providing a sanctuary for mini beasts.

 

Although the perimeter of this garden runs close to Binstead Road, our guests are always surprised that such a little oasis is

possible and peaceful.

 

New for 2017 we have recently constructed steps at the back of the house to link the south facing garden and the wild garden

which had been abandoned and was heavily overgrown for a decade.

 

This walkway gives a lovely view over the main garden.
