In Pictures: The Perfect Accessible Holiday Cottage Garden

Updated: Jul 10


One of my favourite places to stay is Croft Bungalow in Birchover, Derbyshire. I returned last month for the third time, to see the latest addition to this accessible cottage – a stunning sensory garden.

The bungalow itself has been tastefully adapted and is well equipped; a perfect countryside hideaway, home-from-home. Get all the details on Croft Bungalow’s website.

The addition of the sensory garden which has been made accessible not only for those of us with mobility requirements, but also has carefully thought out tactile, colour and scent areas (my dog Poppy loved those!) and a beautiful cascading water feature made from local stone providing the sound element.

I was incredibly lucky to catch the last of the September sunshine in this gorgeous setting.
