Mothecombe Gardens lie at the mouth of the Erme estuary, surrounded by the Flete Estate. You approach the garden through the hamlet of Mothecombe, which consists of fifteen thatched estate cottages. It is like stepping back in time. Mothecombe House is a Queen Anne house with additions by Sir Edwin Lutyens.

Come and enjoy the walled gardens with their fruit trees and flower borders. The vegetable garden is newly planted with bee friendly flowers. The orchard leads down past flowering shrubs & streams to the bog garden, and Mothecombe pond. The camellia walk leads through a mass of bluebells and down to the sandy shore.

Now you can have 3 in a quartet!

Some of our clients prefer a smaller set-up for their events and venues so the Metropolis Swing Quartet is now also available as a trio. Dubbed by one local devotee as the "Three-Quarters Quartet", the new line up consists of clarinet, piano and bass and still plays the same swing and jazz but with a twist! Ideal for smaller venues or events when you want great music but on a smaller scale!
