Lukesland is a 24-acre family-run garden in Dartmoor National Park, on the edge of Ivybridge, in the South Hams. Set in the picturesque valley of the Addicombe Brook, Lukesland is well-loved for its wonderful range of spring and autumn flowering shrubs and specimen trees, some dating from Victorian times.

We have new features in the garden for you to explore in 2021:

The Retreat in the Pinetum – built from Lukesland timber as a 90th birthday present at the request of Rosemary Howell, giving fine views of the wonderful redwoods planted in the 80’s by Rosemary and her husband Brian.

The Old Aviary scented garden – nestled in behind the camellias by the Tudor wall. A sunny spot to sit for a moment among herbs and other scented plants.

The Sound and Story Garden for children.

Adults £6, Visitors arriving on foot, bicycle or horseback: £5.50
Children under 16 and wheelchair-users go free. Parking is also free with disabled parking available.

Window Wonderland Totnes

With the dark nights drawing in and still being in uncertain times there is going to be an illuminated, magical, whole-town walking trail, to be explored and enjoyed this Halloween organised by Totnes Carnival Committee. WHAT IS WINDOW WANDERLAND? Window Wanderland is an uplifting, family-friendly event, where residents, businesses, groups and schools can create a display for their window, door or garden forming an illuminated walking trail. These individual windows across the town will transform our streets into dazzling galleries and the beauty of Totnes’s unique community spirit will be showcased and ablaze for all to see. WHEN IS IT? Due to the success of our first event in 2020 and things still being a little uncertain  Totnes Carnival's second Window Wanderland will be brightening the evenings of Saturday 30th October and Sunday 31st October between the hours of 6pm – 9pm.  Or you can put your displays up in the run up to the 31st. HOW TO GET INVOLVED It’s really easy to do. You can take part by either making a display or simply by coming out on the trail and seeing Totnes in a whole new light. No matter how small or large your street facing window, door or garden, let’s brighten up TOTNES with this unique and wonderful feel-good festival. Anyone can take part, regardless of age and almost anything can count as a display: from a string of fairy lights to a band playing in your front room. As long as it's family friendly, anything goes! No fancy lights needed, just a normal room light or lamp will bring your display to life. The theme is Halloween so let your creative juices shine. PARTICPATE  Let’s set Totnes alight together. We’ve all had such a bizarre few months and the carnival had to be cancelled again this year so we thought this is a way to bring our community together again and bring light to the darkness in these times.  No matter what is happening in the world, Wanderlands are self-contained and Covid-safe. Window Wanderland is a free event and everyone in Totnes is welcome to be part of the trail.  You can make a display in the window of your home, business, school, nursery, shop, car, campervan, boat, pub, front door or even your garden. Your display can be as simple as a string of lights, an open book with a lamp, tissue and card silhouettes or you can totally push the limits and create an installation piece, live performance or living art.  Set your imagination alight.  See window ideas here: All the displays are put on to a map for people to follow and local businesses, residents, groups and schools are encouraged to get involved. Once you’ve decided to take part, then simply register your display and this will create a map for the trail on Saturday 30th October from 6-9 pm.
