This garden has been re-designed and landscaped over the last 5 years. Benefiting from established trees surrounding the grounds, it now enjoys woodland gardens, combined with informal cottage planting. Separately the garden has a pond area to attract natural wildlife. A springtime joy with great displays of daffodils and tulips, followed by bright summer colours throughout all the beds and borders complimented with majestic tree ferns.
Maxfield Cottage, Crutches Lane, HP9 2TG
Over a period of nearly 30 years Jim and Denise have created, cared for and loved this garden. The garden wraps around the house creating different areas some broad and open, others more peaceful and intimate. Tucked behind a pergola they have created raised beds for growing vegetables, fruit and cut flowers. To the front of the house is a fairly large lawn with fruit trees at one end and surrounded by flower borders. To the side of the house there is a smaller lawn with a rockery and to the rear a further lawn with borders of flowers and shrubs.
Upon arrival at Jordans Village, drive past the Jordans Village Estate Office on the Village Green, and turn right into Green West Rd.
Go past the Village Store and continue straight all the way to the end of the road where you will find Spindrift, tucked away on the left of the entrance to the Village School – please pay here before making your way to the remaining gardens.
