Discover eight acres of beautiful gardens, wildflower meadows and woodland in rural Lincolnshire.

Situated in the small rural village of Saxby, Brightwater Gardens is a collection of formal and naturalistic gardens. 
 
Surrounded by open countryside and magnificent views, the gardens here cover around 8 acres. Lovingly created and developed over the last 20 years, each area is full of different flowers, plants and trees.  

The formal garden rooms and long terrace are enclosed by walls and hedges of yew and beech. Planted with peonies, shrub roses, hydrangeas, climbers, herbaceous perennials, and seasonally planted pots, there is always something new to see.

There is also a damp garden with a viewing deck, which is planted with architectural gunnera and a good selection of damp loving plants. The hillside lawn is planted with rarer trees and overlooks a small lake.

Grass paths lead through prairie borders and areas of wildflower areas which include native orchids. You can follow the path into the woodland, which has been planted with 750 trees and over 200,000 snowdrops, narcissi, bluebells, and other naturalising spring bulbs to create a lovely ¼ mile walk.
