Welcome to Ellicar Gardens

Ellicar Gardens is a young, vibrant family garden set in 5 acres. Owners Will (Horticulturalist) and Sarah Murch, (Garden Designer) have set about creating a naturalistic garden that is as rich and diverse in wildlife as it is in plants.

With sweeping borders and flower gardens spilling into wildflower meadows, the garden includes a winter garden, gravel garden, rose garden, orchard and a new Bird Garden with its Crab Apple Avenue leading down to ‘Hannah’s Wood.’

Children love exploring the School Garden, Tree House and Willow Maze  and the focal point of our garden and family life is a beautiful 300sqm Natural Swimming Pool.

The garden is also home to some of our Rare Breed Pets – they are always happy to greet garden visitors
