About

Reopen 6 July! Book your tickets online!

130 acres of ancient woodland with over 3.5 miles of paths. We have a tearoom, gift shop, bird hides, children's nature trail and plant sales area. We also have a programme of events all year round - details can be found on our website.

Visit in the spring to see the UK's finest collection of Candelabra Primulas as well as bluebells, camellia's and wood anemones. Summer brings Hydrangeas, Philadelphus and many wild flowers. Migrant birds and other wildlife come to the garden in the autumn, and there are many varieties of fungi and toadstools. Winter walks are great for spotting King Fishers, Deer and Otters.

Boat trips from April to the end of October (additional charge).
