The Sea Breeze Garden Tropical Entrance Patio

The Sea Breeze Garden designed by Andy Sturgeon

I commissioned the garden by Andy Sturgeon Garden Designer in 2005. He is an International Show Garden Designer. Twice voted one of the top ten garden designers in the UK and winner of numerous awards both Internationally and in the UK, including 6 Gold Medals Best Show Garden 2010 and 2016 at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Andy blends strong design, natural materials and innovative planting to create bold, architectural and timeless landscapes.  The garden was featured in Coast magazineThe Sea Breeze Garden.

The design features

The garden is divided into three sections. From the car parking area, there is a shaded area which has a wonderful display of hellebore and daffodils in the spring.

The pathway up to the front door draws the eye up to the courtyard tropical garden framed on each side by oak and steel archways lined with holly oaks and olives trees grown as a hedge.

The main garden with its raised sun deck has two loungers for guests and overlooks Manorbier Castle and the Pembrokeshire Coast.

Guests can enjoy the patio area for afternoon tea or relax spending the day out and about in Pembrokeshire before going out to supper in Manorbier, or having a picnic/barbeque at the beach (weather and high tide permitting)!

The Wind Elipse Sculpture

I commissioned this kinetic sculpture in 2012 by my friend and local artist Ivan Black .  I wanted this to enhance an area of the garden which would be of interest to guests whilst sitting in the garden, dining room or guest sitting room. It changes in the light and weather throughout the day each section moving independently from each other so that it does not detract from the view of the castle.
