Planned Open Days

There are several planned openings each year.  These may be in aid of such as the National Gardens Scheme, (NGS), or other charities.  An admission charge applies on these days.

Special interest groups, such as gardening clubs, can book a day, which may then be private, or open to the public, subject to our agreement.

Whereas children are welcome in the gardens we expect that they are supervised at all times.  The lawns can be excellent play areas.  Sadly however, significant damage has been caused in the past by uncontrolled youngsters running wildly through flower beds and damaging garden ornaments.

 

Planned dates/details for 2021
