Sun, 2nd Jun, 2024, 14:00 - 17:00

Les Aix is a charming old Jersey granite house surrounded by extensive grounds and home to painting artist Ariel Whatmore. Lined by oak trees underplanted with bulbs and wild flowers, the driveway provides a delightful informal approach to this beautiful traditional granite property, part of which dates back to the 12th century. The garden has been sectioned into rooms evoking changes in mood, the Grey Garden in the courtyard, the White Garden flanking the west of the house, Red border and Foliage border . The magnificent Maze of nearly a thousand box plants grown from cuttings symbolise an artist’s palette containing five small circular gardens of different colours to represent the paint and an old jersey cider press where the artists thumb would be holding the palette. Climbing roses adorn the house facade where clotted cream teas are served by our voluteer team on the front lawns. Entrance £6 per person, children under 12 free Cream teas will be served all afternoon £5.50 each Additional activities – Tombola and Nature trail with bird experts.
