Planning your visit

We want you to enjoy your visit to the garden – your safety is our priority. This means we’ve had to make some changes so that we can keep everyone safe. Please read our Guide on what to expect before you set off.

We would appreciate contactless payment only if possible.

This property is part of the ‘We’re Good to Go’ scheme, which means we have carried out an official COVID-19 risk assessment to check we have everything in place to reopen safely.

Assistance dogs only are permitted in the garden, but information on alternative local dog walks is available at reception.

Please see our drop-down Facilities below for helpful information about planning your visit.

For more information about planning your visit, please see our frequently asked questions.

If you’d like to speak to us we can be contacted by email on or telephone 01389 849187.
