This beautifully landscaped garden, created by Jurat and Mrs Robert Christensen is a magical space set above Grouville Bay with glorious views of Mont Orgueil Castle.  The immaculate sweeping lawns lead off into various rooms full of colourful interesting plants, shrubs and specimen trees. There are many mediterranean and foliage plants set around the swimming pool area and children will particularly love the Hidden Garden . The Kitchen Garden with its ancient wall and traditional sunken greenhouse is worth a visit alone.

Enjoy a clotted cream tea on the terrace with a spectacular view of the Castle, served by our team of volunteers
