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 new Anniversary 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 – 5pm.



Nursery open to garden and non garden visitors alike from 10am – 6pm every day between 1st April – 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.

Lovely bit of feedback from a member of the audience at Wind In The Willows #thankyou

'I just wanted to say thank you to everyone at Burrow Farm Gardens for the excellent handling of the recent production of Wind in the Willows. You all did a marvellous job of making sure that we all felt safe & comfortable in these weird times of social distancing and hand sanitisation! Your smiley faces and ease at dealing with unfamiliar procedures made the whole audience experience very easy and enjoyable. I hope to see more live theatre at the gardens soon.'
