Horticulture and Gardens

Drym Valley Centre is surrounded by a 25 acre grassland valley. Available for walks, arts & crafts projects and conservation work. Ten years ago we planted out 400 indigenous trees on the lower slopes, leading down to the stream at the bottom where you will find an acre of mixed variety willow to help with drainage.

This area is a great place to watch birdlife. Herons can be spotted, swallows, swans and collard geese. It is also a great sheltered place for wild camping and has a nature trail thanks to a local group of young adults from the Princes Trust. The valley is also used for grazing by our cattle, the area is organic and managed sympathetically along traditional methods.

Closer to the centre the garden is well managed with a series of raised themed beds with such as a Peace garden, exotic area, fernery herbs and topiary beds. We also have cut flower beds and 2 polytunnels.

All produce grown are used in the kitchen for soups, chutneys and seasonal dishes.
