Weeping Ash Garden

Open on selected Sundays, please call ahead of your visit to ensure Weeping Ash Garden will be open

A series of circles of different sizes are joined together using lawns, ponds and flowerbeds to create a wonderful sense of secrecy.

Different areas have evolved over time and are now hidden from each other by clever and imaginative planting. Secluded ‘garden rooms’ have created their own microclimates to encourage the growth of unusual plant types.

With its hidden pathways and wooded  areas, it’s hard to believe that Weeping Ash didn’t exist just 20 years ago. It’s a joy to experience at any time of year – intoxicating in summer and magical in winter.

The garden is open subject to weather conditions, and all proceeds from visits go to our nominated charity of the year.  Seasonal group visits can also be combined with lunch at Bents’ Award Winning The Fresh Approach Restaurant.
