THE GARDENS


THIS IS A SHORT VIRTUAL TOUR OF THEGARDENS.


Rose and Terry Barter moved to West Wales in 1995 and set about turning an empty field into a series of beautiful sculpture gardens. As this is an ongoing project there is something new to see each year .


Featured in the virtual tour:

• The Earth Goddess, a 30 ft long earth sculpture made by Terry and his son Ben.

• The Angel House, a unique island folly housing Terry's collection of Angel and Cherub sculptures.

• The Japanese Torii ( sacred gateway) which leads you through into the orchard.

• The Zen Garden, where you can rake the sand, or play a singing bowl.

• The Meadow Sculpture Footpath and stone circle .

• The Romantic Garden with bowers of roses and clematis and a statue of Venus .

• The Peace Pavilion. This is a lovely place to sit and enjoy our best view over the River Ceri Valley amongst roses, lilies (when they are in season) and contemplative sculpture.

• The Gothic garden with its striking mixture of strange sculpture and purple, black and grey plants.

• The Planetary Herb Garden. This is set out in the medieval fashion of grouping herbs according to their planetary influence.

• The Greenman Bower. This living willow structure houses some of Terry's Greenman sculptures and original Tree Spirit carvings.

• The Labyrinth .

• The Vegetable garden and mini vineyard.

• The Rowan Grove, where Paul Jenkin's magical sculptures of Hares are displayed.

• The Starfish Tea Room Patio. Ring the bell on the conservatory to let us know you are ready for a well deserved cup of tea and some yummy cakes. .
