“Nestled in the countryside of North Yorkshire, this rare gem
of a place offered us a beautiful day…”

Open from 2nd April to 31st October 2021

Please purchase your tickets online in advance of your visit.

Please check the website before you set off for daily updates and weather warnings.

 

 

We are delighted to announce we are open and welcoming visitors. With the gardens enjoying a late bloom, and over 45 acres to explore we have plenty of space and fresh air for all to enjoy. 

During your visit indulge in one of our tempting food and drink offerings. Our Takeaway Tearoom has an exciting new hot and cold menu including vegan, vegetarian and gluten free choices; while the popular Horsebox (located in the heart of the garden) offers hot and cold drinks, freshly prepared sandwiches, snacks, delicious sweet treats and Brymor Ice Cream. Whatever your preference, appetite small or large we have something delicious to tempt you in our takeaway meets outdoor dining style.

The safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers is always our number one priority. To operate safely  we will be adhering to all Covid-19 restrictions and Government guidelines.  The number of visitors per day will be limited and tickets must be purchased online, in advance for a specific day. Season ticket holders may visit at anytime but, must also reserve a place for each visit. We are unable to change tickets to a different date for weather related reasons. If you are unable to attend on the specific day booked (due to an emergency or illness) please contact the Office to arrange to visit on an alternative day.

Our toilets are open (with additional toilets located  in the Car Park) and our woodland playground has Covid-19 measures in place to allow safe use. A special selection of plants are available for sale from the Buddah Garden.

We are taking coach and group bookings. Group visits could be subject to change depending upon Government Guidance, and Covid restrictions  at the time of your visit. We have a flexible booking system in place to deal with this and can change the booking date if required.

Please look at our Covid-19 Visitor Guide for further information https://www.himalayangarden.com/home/covid-19-visitor-guide/

Stay safe and well and we look forward to welcoming you soon.

We have taken the decision to continue operating as a Takeaway during the month of June/July, and we will not have any seated dining inside the Tearoom. The Government guidelines for catering still greatly restrict how we can operate safely, and we will therefore continue with our safe and successful takeaway meets outdoor dining style until the 19th of July, when we hope to return to indoor dining. We have ample outdoor seating on the Buddha and also a marquee in case of the odd shower.

The Tearoom is serving hot and cold drinks, freshly prepared sandwiches, platters, soup and hot and cold food options, along with sweet treats for visitors to enjoy and eat outside, or in our marquee. Our refreshment trailer located in the heart of the garden serves tea, coffee and soft drinks, as well as freshly prepared sandwiches, delicious Brymor ice cream, snacks and sweet treats, in an open, beautiful space.

The Woodland Playground will be open with Covid-19 measures in place to allow safe use

Our woodland playground provides entertainment for the children, with climbing, monkey bars, swings and a spinning roundabout. Located next to our tearoom it is a great spot for children to play while parents enjoy some refreshments. Please observe the following when using the playground; use hand sanitiser before and after use, avoid touching your face / sucking fingers, no more than 1 family group on each station at any one time, head clockwise around the playground, always respect social distancing rules and no food or drink in the playground area.

A beautiful gift or a luxurious treat, we are pleased to unveil our new range of scented wood wick candles and reed diffusers. Now available to buy online. Free postage for ordered over £30 and a postage cost of £2.95 for orders below £30.

We have hand picked four beautiful fragrances for you to choose from: Cinnamon, Orange and Clove, Himalayan Cedar and Jasmine, Oriental Poppy and Peony. The candles are hand poured, made from a mixture of soy and mineral waxes to ensure the best scent possible whilst keeping carbon emissions to a minimum and the wooden wicks softly crackle as they burn. All elements for both the reed diffusers and candles are sourced in the UK with no use of plastics. Candles are priced at £19.50 and Reed Diffusers at £24.50. Now available to buy online. Free postage for ordered over £30 and a postage cost of £2.95 for orders below £30

Dog Walking

We welcome well-behaved dogs but, ask that they are kept on a lead at all times. Owners are expected to clean up after their dogs and ensure that they do not cause a nuisance to other visitors.

Garden History

Peter and Caroline Roberts originally bought the property in 1996, as a privately owned 20 acre woodland garden, which has now been extended to 45 acres. Some of the grounds were coppiced Hazel woodland with an infestation of Japanese Knotweed, whilst other parts of the site were dense, dark woods of Sitka Spruce.

“We started the garden because the acid soil, abundance of springs and microclimate is ideal for growing Himalayan plants. The planting enhances our large, internationally recognised art collection and we add more features every year.”
