The Bay Garden was created by Frances and Iain MacDonald when they moved to Camolin in 1989. Frances and Iain applied their academic talents and practical experience to building the garden of their dreams in a neglected orchard full of trees and wild cherry.
The garden has evolved over the intervening years. Through excellent design, careful planning and the application of their great knowledge of plants that is very evident as you go around the garden Frances and Iain creating an astounding array of different garden “rooms”. This garden is a feast for the senses.
