    About this property

    • Originally forming part of The Tongswood Estate, The Walled Nursery is a historical masterpiece in the gardening world, with 13 Victorian Glasshouses dating back to the 1800’s; including a Melon House, Cucumber House, Peach Case, Fernery and a ¾ Span Vinery. The majority of the Glasshouses have recently been restored, with part of the Vinery being transformed into a café in 2016 and the existing gift shop being extended, thus creating a successful horticultural outlet with a hearty income stream. A delightful two bedroomed Bothy Cottage forms part of The Walled Nursery, comprising an open plan kitchen/dining room study with a charming bay window overlooking the glasshouses and lawns; a bathroom with WC, bath and integrated shower; two spacious double bedrooms; and a central living room with access to the rear which leads to a personal garden area with yard and outbuildings.
