Visit to Burrow Farm Gardens and Charmouth Beach

Today, being our 20th wedding anniversary and also a lovely sunny day, we took ourselves out for the day.  The first place we visited was Burrow Farm Gardens.  It is 10 acres of beautiful gardens, ponds, bogs, woodland garden and beautiful views.  This was the Millenium Garden.


There were some lovely really large Iris flowers in this garden.



I spotted a really large wild foxglove.


There were several stone statues throughout the gardens.


There were quite a few specimens of this plant that looks like enormous rhubarb and has the most gigantic leaves, I don’t know what it is called.


We sat by the pond watching the ducks and admiring the view up the hill.


We had a spot of lunch in their tea rooms and then left for the coast.  Charmouth is just a bit further East of Lyme Regis and is quite unspoilt and not commercialised at all.  It is a stony beach and when we walked along the pebbles the wind came up although it was really sunny. This is me in front of the beach huts.


And this is Neil along the beach.


There was one lady in the sea having a dip but we contented ourselves with Neil skimming stones and me watching!!


And then of course we stopped to have an ice cream – got to be done when you are on the beach.  So all in all a really pleasant day out and all not far from here.

  1. What is it about men skipping stones? my husband does it as well. I think the big leaved plant may be a Gunnera?
