At the end of winding lanes in the South Devon countryside awaits a comfortable looking house surrounded by tranquil tropical gardens which have been landscaped into the steep cliff.
Narrow gravel paths meander between one hidden garden and another, the higher ones giving a peek to the treasures below with views over the sea and Salcombe Estuary.
Apart from the large variety of tropical plants and trees, the addition of stone walls, a decorative blue iron gate, a stairway with quirky rails and an elegant statuette, add to the charm of this exotic National Trust garden.
Overbeck’s is a beautifully situated National Trust property which overlooks the Salcombe Estuary in South Devon.
To appreciate all the natural beauty on display, one should forget about the clock and stroll around at leisure, stopping now and again, amongst the boarders and on the lawns, to investigate in close-up the glorious colours of the flowers and the textures in the barks of the trees.
Overbeck’s is indeed a refreshment to the soul.
