Pines Garden

This 6 acre garden has many fine features including a cascade and adjoining lake, a specially created grass labyrinth and organic kitchen garden with over 40 different species of fruit and vegetables. There are extensive paths for buggy and wheelchair access, and lots of seating for visitors to come and relax at any time of the year.

Ensure that you take the time to relax in our tea room which serves hot and cold drinks along with freshly made sandwiches, light lunches and delicious home made cakes. Our tea room is situated across the garden and open Wednesday to Sunday 10:30 to 16:00 and Bank Holidays in the summer months.
