Information about visits from the 19th of July onwards
Following the Government announcement on the 12th of July and the further easing of Covid restrictions, we wanted to tell you about the cautious and gradual approach we are taking to lifting our Covid safety measures, with the health and well being of our visitors, staff and volunteers remaining our number one priority.
1. We will retain the need for all visits to be booked online in advance via our website. Tickets are valid from 10am to 4pm (we are not operating time slots). Daily visitor numbers will be limited to ensure a safe, relaxed and enjoyable visit.
2. We will continue to operate our Tearoom as a Takeaway, offering exciting hot and cold food and drink options and delicious sweet treats, with outdoor and covered seating options in the Buddha Garden. Visitors are to wear masks when ordering food and drinks from the Tearoom.
3. Our toilets will return to the usual single sex format. We kindly ask all visitors using the toilet facilities to wear masks and keep a safe and respectful distance.
4. We will continue to ask visitors to follow our Covid-19 Safety Rules when using the woodland playground.
5. Our hourly cleaning schedule remains in place, particularly focusing on door handles, toilet areas, surfaces, seating areas etc. The areas used by visitors and staff are regularly fogged with a Pathogen Disinfectant at the end of the day to provide extra protection.
6. All purchases made while visiting (refreshments, plant sales and merchandise) must be paid for by card or contactless payment methods. We are not accepting cash.
We will be reviewing these measures regularly, with updates when we feel it is the best interest of all concerned.
Welcome to the Park, with 45 acres to explore we have plenty of space and fresh air for all to enjoy.
We have taken the decision to continue operating as a Takeaway until the 16th of August, and we will not have any seated dining inside the Tearoom.
This decision has been taken due to the delay to ending quarantine for fully vaccinated contacts of people with Covid. We will therefore continue with our safe and successful takeaway meets outdoor dining style. We have ample outdoor seating, outside the Tearoom, in the Buddha Garden and also a marquee in case of the odd shower. 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.Menu
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.

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.”
