Please note that in wet weather the Garden gets very muddy and slippery in places. Please wear sensible footwear.
The Garden is only partially accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs due to steps, narrow and uneven paths in places. After wet weather accessibility is reduced even more due to soft ground and the risk of getting stuck or causing damage to the grounds. Please contact us for details.
Dogs are very welcome, so long as they are kept on a lead and 'accidents' are cleared up. We have a number of ducks and other waterfowl, so please do not bring your dog if he/she will worry the birds.
We have two areas for picnics - a large grass area near the car-park with chairs and tables, and a covered area under reception with plenty of seating. Please do not picnic elsewhere in the Garden as it can cause disruption to other visitors. We have one loo onsite for visitors.
We do not have a café on site, so please feel free to bring a picnic or have lunch at one of the fantastic local pubs or farm shops in the area. Please contact us for further information, or see our Local Places page for recommendations.
Please note that we are essentially an open air art gallery - not a park, so we kindly ask that children do not run around or scream as it can spoil the experience for other visitors (and scare the wildlife). There are public playing fields nearby in Walliswood and Ockley, should some energy need to be burned off.
