Welcome to Ellicar Gardens

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

With sweeping borders and flower gardens spilling into wildflower meadows, within a framework of young specimen trees and shrubs, the garden is as beautiful in winter as in the height of summer.

Borders overflow with colour, dance with butterflies and hum bees. The garden is a haven for birds and alive with birdsong.

At the heart of the garden is our beautiful Natural Swimming Pool - a sky mirror, watery retreat and magnet for wildlife.

Wildlife lovers and garden enthusiasts will enjoy exploring the gardens and there is plenty of fun for children and families with a willow maze, school garden and friendly rare breed pets.
