A Somerset Garden in Mells
We are open for the Summer
Welcome to The Walled Garden at Mells
Welcome to the Walled Garden at Mells – For the past nine years we have been warmly welcoming people to this unique space to enjoy the peace tranquility and unique setting that this part of Somerset offers.
We are a small walled cottage garden in the heart of the Mells Estate, Somerset set in an acre of ground with a café/restaurant and things to buy including a wide selection of perennials, herbs, cottage garden plants, pots, and locally made iron work.
Some recent news about us:
The Walled Garden has had a bit of a tumultuous 6mths in our efforts to get retrospective planning permission for the café on site. The ongoing challenge lies with the parking issues that the village collectively faces. The carpark on Longfield drive has been recently enlarged and enhanced to alleviate this issue.
Our planning application will be going in front of Mendip Council Planning for a final decision towards the end of August 2017. The application is requesting that we continue operating the cafe as we have been for the last 9 years. Opening to the public from 10am-5pm everyday from the beginning of April until the end of October with no more than 12 evening events per year.
If you would like to voice your support for the continuation of this small rural business and the local employment it provides please follow the link below
