Refreshment in the gardens

After your stroll along the river and the family have tired themselves out in the natural play area why not stop for some refreshment?

Our humble tea tent is self service and situated at the top of the riverside garden. In here you can find freashly baked cakes as well as hot and cold drinks. You can either sit in or take your refreshments away with you to enjoy in the garden.

Picnicking paradise

Our gardens are fantastic for picnicking any time of year and visitors are free to choose a spot they like anywhere in the garden.  Relax on a deckchair next to the river to watch the world go by or bring a picnic rug and find a quiet spot under an ancient tree.

Fresh and seasonal

Visit the walled garden in every season to see the glass house full of fruit and vegetables. You can also take a piece of The Weir home with you with our plant, fruit and vegetable sales. Create your own seasonal supper or choose a plant to add to your own collection.

We grow many different types of seasonal plants and also stock an extensive range of other more exotic plants including a range of carnivorous plants. Take a look in our glass house and see what is on offer when you next visit.
