The gardens of Pear Tree Cottage sit in a cider apple orchard in the green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England. It enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury & Abberley clock tower. The Teme Valley lies just over the hill and, not far away, is the Herefordshire border. Although our climate is temperate, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener!

How to prevent a door slamming.

The perfect answer for a door restraint.  This garage door doesn't lend itself to either a wedge at its base or being hooked open as it needs to be restrained at 90 degrees.   Designed and hand crafted by one esteemed builder, the door slides beneath the simple wooden drop hook which then drops down securing the door firmly.  To close, simply lift the hook - PERFICK!
