Providing a welcoming and relaxed space to enjoy a meal or tea and cake, the Riding House can be found adjacent to the house and boasts a lift accessible mezzanine floor, wait to table service and a central location in the heart of the garden. The Welcome Cafe at the entrance to the garden is open as usual too, so you have a choice of cafe and dining experience.

The café and toilet provisions at Nymans have long needed improving. The changes we've made will much better meet the needs of our visitors and provide facilities in the heart of the garden next to the house.

The benefits

  • Much-needed modern facilities, which so many of our visitors have asked for in their feedback.
  • Views from the tearoom's mezzanine floor stretch across the fields and woods, so you can enjoy the view while taking a break.
  • 20 new toilets, including family toilets, a new fully accessible toilet and changing place.
  • The income from the new tearoom directly supports conservation work at Nymans, making sure the gardens, house and woodland are cared for and beautiful, for everyone, for ever.

We're open every day 10am - 5pm.
