The garden in Summer
You can’t help but relax as you slump into one of our comfy pink deckchairs at The Weir Garden. Spend as long as you like here, listen to the river and contently wait for nature to come to you.
The flower borders are looking bold and beautiful and wildlife is ample in the warm sunshine of summertime at The Weir Garden. The riverside is full of lush green grass and wildflowers, the humming of bees and the sight of fluttering butterflies are prominent and the ten acres of nature and unspoilt gardens provides a green breathing space for all ages.
Huge trees, such as our special London Plane, provide shade from the heat and the intricate network of pathways means there are plenty of different routes to be explored throughout the grounds.
Whilst in the walled garden you can see all sorts of flora, from cottage garden blooms to more exotic species in the glasshouse. Quite often, you can find the garden team dotted around busily watering and weeding, do say hello and ask any questions.
Songbirds and waterfowl are abundant throughout the summer, visit our newly build bird hide to get up close to the bird feeders, you may spot something a little different such as a Green Woodpecker. We have many types of waterfowl on the river, sometimes a passing Mandarin or Goosander but more commonly Mallards and Mute Swans.
For whatever reason you are visiting be it to relax by the river, to spot birds or to picnic with your family, every time you visit The Weir you are helping support this special place not only for future generations but also for the wildlife that resides here.
