Jewel of a garden find in Devon UK

If you are planning on going to the west country in the UK, you must see the Winsford Walled Garden.
Winsford is only a short 1/2 hour drive from RHS Rosemoor.

We have just returned from visiting many gardens in Summerset, Devon, Cornwall and one of the most enjoyable stops was to Winsford. Michael and his family have done a remarkable job building a 21 century garden within the structural back drop of a 19 century Victorian walled garden. The plant collection is remarkable with many unusual species arranged in a pleasant manner that you can get ideas for your own garden.
If you find yourself with a Victorian glass house to restore, ask Michael for advice, as he has become an expert at practical DIY restoration of the teak houses in the garden.

The garden I enjoyed the most in Devon was Marwood Hill near Barnstaple.

Thanks, erstanfo and botann! I'm going to be in England next month and am hoping to go to Devon, where my ancestors lived. Now I know what to go see there.
