After a horrible period of infection, isolation and then incarceration for us all, we are delighted to announce that we will be open to the public on five weekends only for 2022 (details below). The gardens comprise approximately 10 acres of formal snowdrop walks around the house and lake, with further parkland and an arboretum around the house to explore further afield. The beautiful St James’ church is always open and on most Saturdays and Sundays during the season there will be bells ringing out along the valley as visiting campanologists come to make beautiful sounds synonymous with the rural setting. Toilet facilities are located in the courtyard with a plant sales stall.

Ample parking is available in the grounds for cars. Please do not park on the road-side.

There is parking for up to four coaches. Visitors arriving in coaches must pre-book.
Although some of the gardens are inaccessible to wheelchair users, the majority of the snowdrops are visible from the many paths and tracks around the area. Please bear in mind that although we are on free draining Cotswold soil and keep the paths maintained throughout the open period, the inclement winter weather can beat us occasionally, resulting in slippery mud!
Dogs are welcome. Please keep them on a short lead.
Refreshments will be available in the courtyard building. Each weekend a different charity will be providing hot drinks and cakes in order to raise much needed funds for both local and national causes.
