Water Garden Walk at the Dairy
Discover the beauty of the Water Garden.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
A wonderful opportunity to enjoy a free 45 minute peaceful walk around the beautiful Water Garden located in the grounds of The Dairy. Public access to this garden is limited and these guided walks only take place two Wednesdays a month, April to October.
Originally built and planted to be at its most beautiful in the Spring time, the Water Garden provides visitors with a chance to see and enjoy a wealth of unusual planting, rock formations, and wildlife.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
