Visiting the Barn Garden

It is possible to make an advance group booking for 2022, between May and mid-September (excluding August), Monday to Friday, depending on availability.

Groups that visit during June and July can also request to visit Serge Hill. This lovely Regency house is situated next door to the Barn Garden, set in beautiful parkland with a walled garden planted by Kate Stuart-Smith (Tom’s sister).

The cost of visiting the Barn Garden is £20 per head. The cost of visiting the Barn Garden & Serge Hill together is £30 per head. The minimum group size is 15 people, and the maximum is 40 people. You are welcome to bring a smaller group, but the minimum cost for 15 people will apply.

To make an advance group booking please send an email to and include your group size, preferred date and means of transport. Group visits typically start around 10:30am, with an introduction to both gardens included. Groups tend to depart by the early afternoon, which provides ample time for people to explore the gardens at their own pace.

Opening the gardens allows us to raise money for local charities.

It is also possible to visit the garden on 19th June 2022 as part of the National Garden Scheme, click here to book.
