The history of the gardens
In researching the history of the inn, mention is made of the beautiful Victorian gardens which offered a burst of colour at all times on the 4 acre property between the Spring and Fall. Work began in 1995 to reestablish Victorian style gardens. Jill Robinson, a landscape designer from Halifax worked with the Lacebys enhancing and nurturing the established gardens as well as developing new gardens. A terraced vegetable garden was added in 1996. It still provides the dining room with fresh unique salad greens, beans, tomatoes and peppers in season. A series of pond gardens were added a year later. 20 years have now passed and we are proud to see the gardens continue to mature.
