Mill Dene Garden is hidden deep on the north scarp face of the Cotswolds.  It surrounds an old, pre-Norman water mill, with its pond and stream and is set in a tiny valley.

 
Barry and Wendy Dare fell in love with  a building that was falling down with  no garden.  They had no money and no experience of either restoration or horticulture, but learned on the hoof so to speak, whilst doing other jobs and raising children.
 
Their creation over a lifetime is there for everyone to enjoy: two and a half acres of interesting planting (Wendy recently judged at Chelsea); of surprises round every corner and a lot of fun.  Mill Dene has a tiny misty grotto in amongst the bog garden on the stream and a trick of the eye apparently extends the boundaries of the garden.   It is an exercise of making the most of a difficult site.  It is also an exercise in creating something beautiful in which to meditate, and which will nourish the senses.
