Carr House Meadows

An example of English countryside as it used to be

At Carr House Meadows, the old English style meadows have been maintained and create a lovely setting. These meadows are a rare example of the flower rich fields that were once a common sight in England. They  abound with colour – bluebells, yellow rattle and swathes of red and white clover. Scabious and orchids can all be found here, as  well as the bright pink marsh-loving ragged robin, a rarity in the area.
