RE: South West England - Devon, Summerset, Cornwall

Last July I went on a self-designed garden tour in England and visited some of the gardens you list (Hadspen, Garden House,) wish I had seen others on your list (Hestercombe, Heligan) and have one very definite recommendation to make: Bosvigo. Please feel free to email me at for more details and photos, plus vital advice like "You won't believe how long it takes to drive short distances!"
