Nothing outside the garden gate suggests the extent or beauty of Gash Gardens. Once inside you are greeted by an amazing oasis packed with interesting and unusual plants to lure and inspire both the keen plants person and the garden novice. Colourful herbaceous borders, a large rock garden and a well established collection of trees, shrubs, rhododendrons and deliciously perfumed old style roses combine to present a succession of colour through all the seasons. Visitors can sit inside a small rocky cavern known as the Moon House and watch gushing water cascade from above or enjoy the soothing ambience of still ponds and meandering streams. A hidden walkway leads through the fernery and on to the tranquility of a looped walk along the banks of the River Nore where nature abounds. Whether you are a keen gardener, an armchair gardener or a visitor looking for an enjoyable day out, then Gash Gardens is for you.
