There are small ponds, a lake and river in the garden.  Some of the stone paths are uneven and may be slippery in wet weather.


We regret that no dogs are allowed in the garden with the exception of Guide Dogs.  Dogs may be exercised in the car park field on a lead. 

Disabled Access

Disabled visitors are most welcome to the garden, however there are a number of parts that are not accessible to all wheelchairs, others that are not easily reached, and this changes particularly when it has been wet. Special parking arrangements can be made in advance. Please do call beforehand.

Lavatory Facilities

These are very limited, regrettably not suited for wheelchair access.

Car Parking

There is ample free parking in the field. Please follow Car Park signs in Vann Lane. There must be no parking in the road.

Coaches must park by prior arrangement.


We regret that no picnics may be taken in the garden, however you are welcome to picnic in the car park field.  Please take any rubbish home with you.


Photographs for personal use may be taken.  A facilitation fee is charged for any commercial use, by prior arrangement only.


Home-made tea, cakes and biscuits available ‘DIY style’ on some weekdays and weekends – call to confirm. Picnics are allowed in the field.
