The Garden shop and Gift Barn are also open, if you are fit and well and not in a high-risk group, you would be very welcome to visit. In order that we meet the current guidelines, for now, the maximum number of visitors per group will be six individuals or two households. 

We’re delighted to announce the gradual reopening of our Teashop, in addition to our takeaway service and following the latest Government advice, we now have outdoor seating available. There will be no indoor seating available in the Teashop until further notice.

Spring is well on its way, and for those of you who missed seeing the Snowdrops this year we are delighted to share with you a video featuring Robert Jacobs, our Horticultural Manager as he took a walk around the gardens. Thank you to the excellent work of our garden team who work so hard to keep the gardens looking beautiful and to Mike Stephens for kindly helping us with the video production.
