The garden is actually located in an old quarry, so it has rocks, hills, ponds and plenty of plants and grassy areas. The locals know it as the quarry garden, but the garden centre has named it "the secret garden" and it really is an appropriate name.
There is a small opening in the hedge alongside the edge of the carpark, and once you walk through it, the space opens up and you are greeted by different paths, hills, a little stream and open space. You really feel like you've entered a secret world.

I can't wait to take the Small People back in the summer holidays. I figured a sketchpad and disposable camera for the Small Person, lots of running around for the Smaller Person, and finish it off with a cake and drink in The Potting Shed cafe (the garden centre cafe) will make quite a nice trip out.
