folloing on from my quesry earlir about gardens etc to visit in east wilts and west berks we ended up here

https://www.thewalledgardenatmells.co.uk

The walled garden at Mells... small, but lovely. Simple cafe etc to sit in the sun and enjoy the garden.

Its quite diffuclt I found to google something similar elsewhere.!

So - DAK of any similar small gardens (not necessarily walled, not necessarily with a cafe :-), not part of some huge estate - a place in its ownb right etc?

somerset/Dorset/Wilts, hants, Oxon, Berks/Glos in partoicular, but west wales is a go to, as is the banbury area (tho that's Oxon anyway :-)

Abbotsbury in Dorset is an excellent place to visit for many reasons, not least of which is this:

It is more or less next to the more famous swannery.
