Our Sculpture collection

Having sculpture around the garden is very important to us, and we are always adding to our collection.







One of the first sculptures we bought is this fantastic resin sculpture by Kate Denton called the ‘The Dreamer’ - we affectionately refer to her as Dilly Daydream.


More recently we bought this magnificent sculpture of a horse by Andrew Kay, which fits perfectly in the meadow to the west of the house.


This cow parsley sculpture by Toby Winterbourn  looks perfect in this meadow. The detail in each ‘flower’ is remarkable.

As well as a couple of our chickens, in this photograph are the Ewe and Lamb by Rupert Till.


In the foreground of this photograph and in the photo below are pottery echinacea made by local artist Rosemary Blackmore - we have a small range of Rosemary’s ceramics for sale,  her studio is just a few minutes away from our garden.


Here, also, are the five ceramic poppies which we bought from the Tower of London installation - 888,246 poppies were planted in 2014 to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.  

The image below was taken in August 2014, with less than half planted.

These wooden mushrooms were made by local tree surgeon Joel Freire who has a very creative side.




Nigel made the sculpture of reed mace from slate and steel which sits in the stream in the bog garden.



In this picture are two of the three fish made for us by Helen Godfrey.


Welcoming our visitors is this wire barn owl, made for us by Barry Sykes of Animals in Wire.


The barn owls that live around us often hunt up and own the road.
