45 acres of stunningly beautiful woodland, gardens and an arboretum; enhanced by 3 lakes and more than 80 striking contemporary sculptures.
The Tea Room
Our Tea Room serves a range of teas, coffees and cold drinks as well as a variety of food options. From snacks and freshly prepared sandwiches, to warm lunches and a delicious selection of cakes and tray bakes. We have vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options and try to accommodate all dietary requests.
Our woodland playground provides great entertainment for the children, with climbing, monkey bars, swings and a spinning roundabout. Located next to our tea room it is a great spot for children to play while parents enjoy some refreshments.
As a garden there is always a new blooming part of the garden to come and see, from swathes of daffodils in Spring to turning of the leaves in Autumn. We also offer a range of workshops, including Botanical Painting to Sculpture installations and more. We will be launching our events for 2020 in early January.What's on
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.
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.Learn more
“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.”
