18TH CENTURY WALLED GARDEN NURSERY WITH 3 BEDROOM GARDENER’S COTTAGE SET IN HIGH WALLS.
This 2.7 acre walled garden was built in the 1770’s to provide produce for Cally House, the former seat of the Murray-Usher family which is now the Cally Palace Hotel. Since 1987 Cally Gardens has been developed as a specialist nursery by the late Michael Wickenden, the renowned plantsman and plant hunter. The gardens contain Michael’s collection of over 3,000 perennials, many of them grown from seed collected from his plant hunting expeditions around the world. The borders at Cally offer a magnificent display for visitors and have proved to be a popular attraction over many years. A selection of plants from the collection was offered for sale at the nursery which opened from Easter to the end of September and a mail order catalogue was sent out every winter. The sale of Cally Gardens with its outstanding plant collection and reputation offers a great opportunity to build on Michael’s legacy. Unsold potted plant stock, tractor and other nursery equipment are available at valuation.
The walled garden includes a Vinery (in need of restoration), a two storey potting shed, mushroom house, 4 Dutch houses (2 with glass and 2 with shade) and a plant sales area. On the outside the wall there is a car park, tractor shed/store with electricity and water and an area of woodland and field. Total site extends to approx 11 acres.

The cottage has 3 bedrooms (1 downstairs), kitchen diner, lounge, downstairs bathroom, halls, stairway and landing. The walled garden, cottage and vinery/potting shed are Catergory ‘B’ listed.
