Private Tours

IMG_0784-2We also cater for private groups of visitors, (garden clubs, ladies who lunch or a group of like minded friends!) but need to have a booking to ensure that you get the most from your visit. The best size for a group is 15-20 people. The most frequent problem is that groups do not allow enough time for their members to enjoy the garden and to browse and purchase plants afterwards. The minimum time you should allow is an hour and a half but if your group are keen gardeners they will almost certainly want longer.

We will also try and spend some time with you and always give you a garden introduction or a guided tour if you prefer. We will gladly supply light refreshments just as we do on our NGS open days (a light lunch of a savoury tart/sandwiches with coffee and tea or an afternoon tea of sandwiches and cake).

Garden groups are charged at the same rate as our NGS visitors at just £5.00 each (children and dogs visit for free)plus an additional £5.00 per person for refreshments (Entrance fees are donated to the NGS).

There are various benches and seats around the garden for our visitors to use, though disabled access I’m afraid is limited due the terrain that we garden, but the top garden is mostly accessible.IMG_1786

If you are interested in organizing a visitor group outside of our usual NGS open days, send an email to, including your contact details and a preferred date or telephone us direct on 07773 785939 and leave a message.

Many thanks, and Happy Gardening!
