2020 Extended Opening Dates – Opening postponed until further notice
10th April to 1st November from 10am to 4pm Tuesday to Sunday and Bank Holidays
We are sorry to announce, in view of current Government advice, that our opening has been postponed until further notice. It is in the best interests of all our visitors and staff, that we encourage and support social distancing as part of the collective national effort to help tackle the coronavirus. Even though it is of great disappointment to us that you will not be able to enjoy our beautiful gardens and sculptures in person, we will be posting pictures on our website and social media, so you may enjoy from a distance. The decision to remain closed is under constant review as new government advice is issued, and we will update the website and social media platforms with our new opening dates as soon as we are able to do so. Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time. We look forward to welcoming visitors once it has been deemed safe to do so, and until that time please take good care of yourself, family and loved ones.
Our Tearoom 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 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 Instillations and more.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.”
