Spring garden visits 3 of 3: Coverwood Lakes spring garden

Here’s my report on our second spring garden visit, which was now over a week ago. It was to the garden at Coverwood Lakes near Ewhurst, described by NGS Open Gardens as a,

“14 acre landscaped garden in stunning position high in the Surrey Hills with 4 lakes and bog garden. Extensive rhododendrons, azaleas and fine trees. 3½ acre lakeside arboretum. Marked trail through the 180 acre working farm with Hereford cows and calves, sheep and horses, extensive views of the surrounding hills. Light refreshments incl home produced Hereford burgers, cakes, etc.”

In our visit earlier the same day to Walton Poor House I remarked at how much the Surrey Hills are a quiet, undisturbed part of England. Phew, getting from Ranmore to Ewhurst meant lots of single track lanes to negotiate. To say the houses and villages in the Surrey Hills are secluded, is a absolute understatement.

The owner said that the rhododendrons and azaleas were showing themselves to perfection. True, as my brief photo report on our visit hopefully attests.
