About the garden

Anyone else might have balked at restoring this ancient dilapidated farmstead in the conservation area of Portishead. Not owner Helen Reed, who has managed to coax an enchanting garden hamlet from treeless mud-clogged fields and concrete-covered yards. The result is a place of intrigue and intimacy.

In spring, the frothy pink petals of Queen of the Prairie sway against a backdrop of fluffy-headed grasses. While autumn sees the amorous pinks fade to smouldering auburn. Dating back to Medieval and Tudor times, this labour of love encompasses a Rapunzel-style tower, charming old outhouses and renovated medieval barns. The three-acre site oozes romance, from the warm, earthy tones and the carefully sourced vintage furnishings used in the buildings to the hops and jasmine-draped walkway – a wedding photographer’s dream.

As part of the owner’s aim to bring Court House Farm and Gardens back into the community, visitors can also browse blooms at the flower farm, pick up luxurious textiles at an artisan market or book a stay at one of their bijou rooms. Whatever your plans, a trip here is bound to be memorable for all the right reasons.

We had a lovely afternoon flower picking followed by an afternoon tea here. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and Helen was very friendly and welcoming. The setting is lovely, the food was gorgeous and the flowers we picked are beautiful. We will definitely be returning!

Went to the Textile fair today and wish I had taken more cash, so much to buy but few stallholders had card machines. Lovely variety of vintage fabrics and beautiful things to buy. Looking forward to the next one.

Organised well. I'm a seller and the organizer was very accommodating and friendly. The stalls were varied and I think if it hadn't been raining it would have been much busier
