Visit Our Garden
Our Estate is a haven of tranquility. With cultivated gardens to inspire, ancient woodland to explore, cherished wildlife to behold, and an abundance of fresh produce to enjoy.
Fresh air and open spaces are more important than ever for our wellbeing, and our land continues to provide a safe place to exercise and shop for essentials. Due to national lockdown restrictions, we are only open to those living in our local area and ask that you do not travel far to see us.
Visitors must obtain a Garden Membership ahead of visiting, to help reduce queues at the Gatehouse and maintain social distancing. Snacks are available from the Cyder Bar and we will be serving picnics from 8 March - which you can order well before you arrive, and collect at your preferred time.
Garden Membership entitles you to unlimited repeat entry for 12 months, as well as access to seasonal events and regular updates from the estate - please see our Visitor Information page for details.
Visitors are required to have a valid Garden Membership prior to entry. There is no need to specify a day or time for your visit - simply join anytime and visit as many times as you like for 12-months after your first visit. We've partnered with the Candide gardening app to provide a membership that's interactive and paper-free.
Eat what you see; here we serve a vegetable-led menu with views over the gardens.
