Burrow Farm Gardens, East Devon’s Secret Garden

Burrow Farm Gardens is situated in the beautiful countryside between Axminster and Honiton. The 13-acre garden has colour throughout the year. At the time of our visit, there were spring flowers plus stunning Azaleas and Rhododendrons.

Mary and John Benger moved to Burrow Farm in 1959. John built up a dairy herd while Mary started making a garden with the help of her four young children. The old roman clay pit (now The Woodland Garden) was deemed unsuitable for farming and Mary, therefore, started to clear the brambles to create the first part of what is now a 13-acre garden. This wonderful thirteen-acre garden was created from scratch over 55 years.
