Terms and Conditions. (sorry)

The minimum charge for a group or coach party is £120. Cancellations within a week of the booked visit cost £50.

Coaches must observe the parking requirements – we can take no responsibility for coaches which get stuck in our lane.

Please note – afternoons and evenings. 

Coach parties usually stay about an hour and a half. If you would like to stay longer, please let us know when you book.

That’s it!

Guided tours by Anne Wareham additional £50
(I don’t like them, not an ideal way to enjoy the garden and most visitors don’t seem to like them..but if you insist…)

We are:

Half an hour from Bristol

Two and a half hours from London

50 minutes from Bath

50 minutes from Gloucester

45 minutes from Cardiff

Combine a group visit to us with a visit to nearby High Glanau, – an Arts and Crafts garden sensitively restored by Helena Gerrish, who has published a book about its designer, Avray Tipping. Helena is happy to offer tours of her garden with cream teas. Contact Helena on tel 01600 860 005

If you are looking for a holiday in the area here is a selection of  self catering cottages in the locality. This site also includes other local attractions and places to eat. 

Please don’t plan ‘recce’ visits when we are closed for the year (ie from October to May) – we need the break and such visits absolutely don’t do justice to the garden. We regularly have coach parties, so if that is your worry feel reassured that you should have no problems as long as you follow the coach parking details. (see How to find us)

NGS Openings – please see here

Use the other gate unless you are disabled.
