Burrow Farm Gardens is now open again daily until the 31st October 10am – 5pm.  We have 2 Plant Fairs to look forward to this year (first one is on 31st March 2024) and several Theatre performances.

East Devon’s Secret Garden has lost some of its secrecy! In November 2021 it was named The Nations Favourite Public Garden in a competition run by The English Garden and National Garden Scheme. 

When looking for gardens to visit in the South West of England look no further!

East Devon’s secret garden is situated in the idyllic countryside between Axminster & Honiton. The 13 acre garden has colour throughout the year from the spring flowers through to the stunning Azaleas and Rhododendrons in May. Visit in late summer to see the Grasses Garden created to celebrate 50 years of Burrow Farm Gardens.


The Gardens


East Devons Secret Garden has 13 acres of lovingly designed gardens with colour throughout the year.

This peaceful oasis has a variety of different planting styles which complement the stunning rural views. Taste the different design styles within the garden and appreciate the naturalistic planting.

Tea Rooms


Relax and enjoy the fabulous surroundings and extensive views from our conservatory and tea rooom.

Delicious Devon cream teas featuring homemade scones, locally made cakes and homemade soup complement our range of freshly made sandwiches. Coffee, snacks and light lunches are available from 10am – 4.30pm.



Nursery open to garden and non garden visitors alike from 10am – 5pm every day between 29th March – 31st October.

The Nursery sells many of the special plants that are featured within the garden. Our friendly staff will be delighted to help you and Mary can provide extensive knowledge to help you choose just the right plant.

Loads of colour in the nursery at the moment and with the rain forecast to ease up a bit over the next week or so it's a wonderful time to be planting. ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you to everyone who came to our Spring Plant Fair On Easter Sunday - It didn't rain (about as much as you can ask for weather wise at the moment!). Over 1000 people attended, and we must say a huge thank you to all our car parking attendants who did a wonderful job parking over 450 cars. A big thank you as well to all the nurseries for bringing such a fantastic array of plants ... See MoreSee Less
