Driven by their passion for its magical setting, John and Clare have faithfully restored this charming house and enchanting gardens to their original splendour.
The refurbishment project, started in 2001 and has breathed new life into what was a tired and neglected property. With Clare's creativity and 20 years of experience as an Interior Designer, and John's desire for peace and quiet in the countryside, as well as his business acumen as chairman of his own Lloyds Insurance Brokerage, this property has regained its former grandeur.
Clare is now drawing on her other areas of expertise and refocusing her energy to re-establish her home-based business focused on Complementary Medicine. Clare is qualified in many Therapies including Holistic Massage, Polarity, Cranio/Sacral, Theta Healing, Reiki, The Oneness Blessing, Ilahinoor, Colour Therapy as well as NLP, EMO Trance and EFT. In 2013 Clare, along with other complementary therapists, will be opening a new practice here at Sedgwick Park.
Although a novice to horticulture, Clare's desire to share her beautiful garden with others has led her to open the grounds to the public, providing teas and home-made cakes on the terrace. As well as giving tours of the garden, Sedgwick Park's gardeners look after a happy team of volunteers who spend the day alongside them benefitting from their extensive knowledge, free refreshments and lunch provided. if you would like to be one of these volunteer gardeners please contact us.
Wherever possible, John and Clare are also immersing themselves in many projects to open up their home for the benefit of the community and charitable events.
