Spring Flowers out at Hollycombe
One of the lesser known parts of Hollycombe is its Listed Woodland Gardens. These are located below the Fairground and provide a quiet place for visitors to walk and enjoy a bit of tranquility away from the buzz and excitement of the Steam Fair. The next couple of weeks are the best time to see the Gardens as the Azaleas and Rhododendrons are in bloom and the numerous trees still show the colours of their young leaves before the fulll summer sets in. At the opposite end of the grounds, the 400 yard long Azalea Walk is alight with colour and smells as the hundreds of Azalea Mollis Hybrids are in flower. Hurry, though, as the flowers don't last very long!
