Docton Mill Gardens in Devon

This page is about Docton Mill Gardens in Hartland, Devon

Docton Mill is situated in a beautiful valley one thousand meters from the coast. The garden fell into disrepair during the 1970's but the mill was renovated in 1980 and the garden cleared. There was extentsive planting and a new BGog Garden was created. In 2000 a new Magnolia Garden was developed, and herbacous boarders and a Woodland Garden and Greenhouse were established.

All the planting blends into its natrual surrondings and the gardens give great variety throughout the seasones, and in the spring a spectacular display of Narcissi, Bluebells, and wild Garlic.

The tea room provides what was voted as North Devon's best Cream Teas. All food is locally sourced and lightr lunches and speciality salads are served during the summer and was a Gold medal Winner at the Devon county show.

300 varities of plants are offered for sale.

Docton Mill has been traced back to Saxon times with its Weir and tail race, probably before the noram conquest and possibly as early as 901 AD by that time the Royal Manor of Haton would have been established inspiring confidence in the newly settled farms and promoting the new technology of water powered mills to proces the larger quanities of grain the could produce. The Mill stopped working in 1910 because it ran out of buisness.
