FAGUS DAY TRIP TO AND HIGHFIELD FARM and CLOUDS REST
Date: 20/08/20

This garden must possess one of the most spectacular views in the UK.
The creation of a truly plant-loving couple, it is full of interesting and rare subjects, skilfully blended together.
Totally redesigned over the last four years, it is difficult to understand how so much has been achieved in such a short time.
Easy parking, refreshments and toilet.
CLOUDS REST, BROCKWEIR, CHEPSTOW, GLOS.  NP16 7NW
This garden was started from scratch in 2012 in a stony south westerly facing paddock.  Now gravel paths meander down the hillside surrounded by extensive colourful planting, leading the eye to the beautiful Wye Valley below.  The latest addition is a dramatic water feature.
