Within the series of walled gardens you’ll find an extensive herb garden with more than 250 different medicinal and culinary plants, vegetable plots and colourful herbaceous borders, as well as traditional fruit orchards with many local apple varieties. The woodlands offer attractive walks, with many beautiful trees and shrubs, plus plenty of wildlife and wildflowers to look out for along the way.


Important update

With the gradual easing of lockdown restrictions, gardens in the 2-for-1 directory are beginning to open.

To ensure the safety of visitors and staff, many have special measures in place, including pre-booking and limiting the number of visitors.

Before visiting a garden, please contact the garden directly to determine their opening status and any restrictions that may apply.

Please note: we’re unable to keep all individual 2-for-1 garden pages updated, but we will publish the latest details that we have on our weekly updates page from week commencing Monday 8 June, 2020.
