The gardens are situated on the Causeway Coastal Route, within the peninsula of Islandmagee, 2 miles from The Gobbins Cliff Path, with beautiful views over Larne Lough. They have evolved over the past 25 years and extend to 5 acres. The gardens include a series of rooms and include a cottage garden, orchard, vegetable area and herb garden. There are also several meadows, established perennial beds, wildlife pond and a prairie border.

We have a varied collection of hardy perennials and a particular passion for old roses, with over 140 different roses (both old and new) throughout the garden.

We maintain our gardens organically and therefore let nature takes its course as much as possible – the gardens are full of wildlife: Irish hares, bats and badgers visit frequently, with buzzards, sparrowhawks and kestrals flying overhead and a diverse range of insects throughout the garden.

We have planted 10,000 native trees on our surrounding farmland and our Woodland Walk has views towards the Mournes, the Glens of Antrim and Scotland. Plants for Sale are beside the polytunnel.
