“The Garden House is a plantsman’s paradise…. I love it!” Toby Buckland (BBC Presenter)

The Garden House is a charity and all visits to the garden enable us to provide public access and enjoyment for all, whilst also being a leader in horticultural innovation and excellence.  As a charity we also offer education and training for students looking to enjoy a career in horticulture, supported by the Finnis Scott Foundation.  The Garden is funded entirely through ticket sales, our cafe and plant sales and the kind support of our Members and donors.


As Toby Buckland says, our garden is a true plantsman’s paradise which holds delights for both the seasoned gardener and for those who simply enjoy exploring and immersing themselves in the beauty and tranquillity of 12 acres of stunning gardens.


The Garden House holds special seasonal delights all year round, from our famous Snowdrop Festival early in the year, to the magnificent Wisterias, Azaleas and Rhododendron in early summer, the herbaceous summer borders of the Walled Garden and later in the autumn, the Acer Glade with its striking ‘New England’ colours.  


Stroll around the colourful, romantic gardens, including the Summer Garden, Cottage Garden, the Acer Glade (with its stunning autumn colour), the Walled Garden and the Jubilee Arboretum and you’ll enjoy finding new views at every turn.

Stunningly beautiful garden. We loved every moment. A must for garden lovers. A garden that provides true inspiration for your own garden. The scones in the cafe are perfect, just as scones should be!
