Now grown to maturity after thirty years of care, the garden at Mirefoot offers beauty and interest all year round. Accepted to open for the National Garden Scheme, the garden will open to the public for 2 days a year from early next summer.
A large pond is home to wild ducks, frogs and newts, as well as water-lilies and gunnera. The arboretum contains unusual specimens of trees, rhododendrons and azaleas.
Alongside the quantity of more common garden birds and bats, Birdwatchers will spot wheat-ears, green woodpeckers, long-tailed tits, and (more often heard than seen), barn owls and tawny owls.
