Help us fundraise for this all terrain mobility scooter
Sadly, due to the nature of the garden's terrain, it is not accessible for visitors in wheelchairs or with limited mobility. We hope to change this by fundraising to acquire this specialist all terrain 'Tamper' mobility scooter that will cope with our rough paths and steep gradients. Help us to help others by donating through our Just Giving site. Simply click on the Just Giving box below to donate. Many thanks.

We welcome well-behaved dogs, but ask that they are kept on a lead at all times and you clean up after them. For health & safety reasons we do not allow dogs in the Garden Tearoom, but there are plenty of outdoor tables for your use.
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.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.”
