Please park roadside unless walking is difficult, as there are only 2 parking places near the house. Follow the ﬂying fish down a 100m drive to an acre of gently sloping landscaped gardens with stunning views of Mystic. This is the home of two artists. Walk along paths and lawns connecting the two art studios. You’ll find a mixture of deciduous trees in full autumn glory with under-stories of ﬂowering shrubs and ferns. Visit the large enclosed vegetable patch. You will find plenty of seats to relax on throughout the garden. The two art studios are open for viewing and have art works for sale.

Abundant with mature trees in Autumn colour, our small chestnut farm is full of activity over this time of year. The chestnut trees are dropping nuts for harvest and our produce store and shed cafe is open offering a simple menu of seasonal produce inspired food. Check out our wicking beds, pick-your-own chestnuts, have a look at our pastured chickens that rotate around the orchard and take in the gorgeous valley views. A walk around our orchard is strongly recommended to be done in closed footwear. If you are bringing your dog, please pick up its droppings and keep it on a lead at all times.
