During June, July and August, when the gardens are open every Wednesday and Thursday, starting Wednesday 10th June until Thursday 20th August, we will be serving cream teas and home made cakes in the sheltered Orchard Garden.

Even if you don’t want to walk around the gardens, you are welcome to come into the Orchard Tea Garden to enjoy the refreshments without having to pay an entrance charge. And, if the weather is a little inclement, there’s a Grand Open Gazebo to shelter you plus a conservatory for additional warmth.

Bird song, classical music and a beautiful garden setting – what better way to enjoy your afternoon tea? Tea Garden opens at 12:00 noon.
