Barnsdale Gardens

Originally created by presenter Geoff Hamilton for the BBC's Gardeners' World TV programme, Barnsdale is known and loved by people the world over. The site is home to 38 individually designed gardens, from a stream and bog garden full of frogs and newts to our reclaimed garden where you'll find lots of old stuff recycled to new uses. There's also a woodland walk teeming with wildlife and beautiful places where fruit, flowers and vegetables grow, and so much more.
