We regularly cater for garden groups and we need to have a booking to ensure that you get the most from your visit. The best size for a group is 15-40 people but larger groups are OK too. 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 bare minimum is 90 minutes 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 (if you want it that is!). If there are 15 or more in your group we will supply complimentary refreshments - a cup of Fairtrade tea and coffee and biscuits (often home made flapjacks). For these garden groups the charge is the same as individual visitors just £4 each. There is a WC in the garden and various benches and seast around the garden. Disabled access is not wonderful but a walker or wheelchair can gain some access.
If you have a group and wish to visit outside the advertised hours we will also try and fit you in where we can. If you are coming by minibus or coach you'll probably be able to park either on site or in the road nearby. Large coaches will need to drop off your party at the gate and park on the roadside a short distance up the hill. Alternatively your driver may prefer to park up for longer and this map will show you good places to park nearby.
