Trip Reminder : Upton and Dulverton

Tuesday 16th May

Self-drive trip to Sperry Barton, Upton, TA4 2BZ and Hollam House, Dulverton, TA22 9JH

£15.00 per person

Sperry Barton is on the top of the Brendon Hills to the West of Taunton, nestling into the hillside which give it some protection from the elements. The garden was a blank canvas when the owners took on the property nearly 20 years ago, but having moved less than a mile up the road, they were used to both the climate and the terrain. Knowledgable planting combined with a painterly eye have resulted in a gem of a garden which sits comfortably in its surroundings.

Hollam House is a stunning four acre spring garden on the edge of Exmoor.  This is the private garden of Annie Prebensen, half of the design team behind the award winning Donkey Sanctuary Garden at Chelsea in 2019. With rhododendrons, magnolias and thousands of tulips in the borders and grounds, there is a riot of colour in May.  Meadow areas are full of bulbs and wildflowers, and there are ponds, a water garden and a rill. Please note: Hollam House garden is not suitable for people with limited mobility.
