Even the most admired gardens have their season and the moment when Stody becomes something very much out of the ordinary is in May. Over a five-week period, a riot of colour develops through the garden from the bold pinks and purples of the tall rhododendrons towering over more delicate azaleas, to the paler hues of the bluebells and the lily of the valley below. Flowing throughout and softening this intense palette there is a backdrop of magnificent mature trees, expansive lawns and woodland walks.
Stody Lodge Gardens is renowned for its extensive collection of rhododendrons and azaleas. Keen horticulturists and those looking for a great afternoon out will find much interest and inspiration within the garden.
