The Featherstone Show Site
About The Show Site
Featherstone gardens began its rejuvenation in the summer of 2018. At that juncture it was a desperately overgrown jungle, neglected and forgotten for many years.
But with progressive clearing and cutting back a few gems were uncovered and scope to make something magical was soon a realisation rather than just a dream.
A Range Of Summerhouses
Presently in the gardens are three Scotts summerhouses, available to view 7 days a week by appointment.
Situated here is The Baltimore, a cosy 2m octagonal, the Burghley, another popular octagonal being larger in size at 2.4m and the Sun Ray Garden room, a spacious oval measuring 3.4 x 2.2m resides on the site also.
Wildlife & Wellbeing
In Featherstone’s own and neighbouring gardens, surrounding fields too, various wildlife is plentiful, active and seemingly very healthy and happy.
Over the bottom fence a few working bee hives reside, sheep graze the boundaries and lambs drop by for a skippady doo and inquisitive squeak come spring. Playing, learning, and chasing the rabbits and crows.
Green and Spotted woodpeckers laugh and chatter, squirels and robins argue, tits and finches flutter aplenty, pheasants prance, Blackbirds and Thrushes chirp and sing to name just a few.
The excited greeting of the dawn chorus and evening goodnight serenade at opposite ends of the day in their own individual way can be mesmeric. Its a privilege to witness, see and hear.
All this combined makes for a blessed spot, its so easy to shut off, take stock, witness and behold the beauty of nature being right in front of your nose. For David, he has enjoyed and embraced nature all his life and this location continues that pleasure with a real wellbeing feeling almost every day.
