Strange things are happening this half term

late autumn mist at The Weir

As the cooler nights take hold the river Wye creates eerie mists which float through the gardens. It's just the time to come for a walk and follow our spooky Halloween trail with Wendy the witch and the spooks.

Wendy has invited her friends to some along to the Weir Garden but they are difficult to spot in the mists.  Can you find them as they play hide and seek with you?

It wouldn't be Hallowe'en without pumpkin carving..

Afterwards we are also holding pumpkin carving sessions as well as a guess the weight competition. Check the What's on page for full details.

Natural play area

As well as our trail for the children this Autumn we also have a natural play area where you can balance and climb your way around the course.  The area is suitable for all ages and you pass it while on the trail through the woodland garden.

The Walled Garden

The other side of the car park lies the walled garden originally created in the 1920's.  It has recently been restored by the Trust and now features a network of flower and vegetable beds. Come and see the Victorian greenhouse and the late autumn blooms as well as this season's vegetable crop.  

We grow a wide variety of produce harvested at this time of year which we sell in the kiosk next to the car park.  Nothing beats the taste of really fresh vegetables, so we have produced a recipe book full of ideas which is on sale in the shop.  We are most proud of our pumpkin patch this year; which is why we're using some of our produce to celebrate Halloween.
