Archerfield Willow Walk & Fairy Garden

Monday, 27 March 2017

We were recently in East Lothian for a long weekend so popped into Archerfield Walled Garden on the recommendation of a friend. Whilst the walled garden was getting a lot of work done so there wasn’t a lot to see, we had a lovely walk round the Archerfield willow walk & fairy garden. Here are some of our highlights and why it’s worth a visit…

In the beautiful grounds outside Archerfield House, there are some wonderful views to enjoy. There are even picture frames highlighting some of the best views!

We followed the Willow Walk first and found some amazing structures on the way including this dome…

In the Fairy Garden we could go through the Big gate or the Little gate!

There were toadstools which were great for sitting and balancing!…

And there was quiz which took you all around the fairy garden, searching for doors…

We were tired out once we had done that so we went to their lovely cafe to re-fuel. We then had a play outside in the adventure playground whilst Mummy had a look round their lovely shop.

Pop along, it’s well worth a visit.
