Visiting Tintinhull Garden: What you need to know

The Cedar Court at Tintinhull

Tintinhull Garden is open at weekends (on Saturdays & Sundays). You don't need to book your visit in advance.

What's open?

The garden and toilets are open at weekends (on Saturdays and Sundays), from 11am to 4pm. 

Arrival and parking 

If you're arriving by car, please park in the car park and then make your way through the small orchard to the visitor welcome point in the courtyard.

Parking is free. There is designated mobility drop off point outside the courtyard.

Staying safe

The safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff remains our priority. Face coverings are recommended in enclosed, crowded areas during your visit. We'll continue to provide hand sanitiser and stick to our high standards of cleanliness. If you’re showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, or if you've been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 14 days, please don’t visit. 


  • Mobility drop off point outside main courtyard (car park approx 200m away)
  • Mobility toilet available
  • Grounds accessible with care, but paths are uneven and can be difficult to navigate. The arboretum and orchard not easily accessible.

You will find the full access statement in the Facilities and Assess section of the website.

Can I bring a dog?

Dogs are not allowed in the garden except for assistance dogs. Dogs on leads are welcome in the orchard adjacent to the car park.

Exploring the garden

We have a small team in now, but nowhere near what we’re used to, so the garden isn't perhaps as well-groomed as you might be expecting (like many of us). You may spot some weeds and rough edges; please bear with us, and instead enjoy all the many other pleasures that our garden has to offer. Long grass and wild flowers are very attractive to bees and butterflies!

Gardeners will be working in the garden, please respect the social distancing guidelines around them and be aware that at times some areas may be closed for maintenance and to give the team space to work.

There will be no talks, tours, or opportunities for questions or advice at this time.
