Land Farm, BN5
Land Farm occupies over 30 acres of farmland, with its unique star attraction being an impressive naturalistic 8 acre prairie garden. Large swathes of flowers, textured grasses and huge plants, laced with small snaking pathways make for a truly immersive experience. Seasonal changes enable enormous variety of looks and moods across the year.
Looking out over the prairie garden is a 7m tall viewing tower. Constructed using unadorned steel sheets, its impressive structural design provides interesting backdrop opportunities.
As well as the core prairie garden, the farm also offers a cutting garden and tropical display, as well as woodland, grass pastures where Shetland sheep graze and a mix of farm buildings, including chicken sheds and glass houses. A contemporary conversion of a dutch barn is the owners’ home and also available for hire.
