Information for visitors

Important information before visiting.

Due to the pandemic we have been inundated with visitors and although the gardens themselves are capable of dealing with a reasonable amount of people we have been having issues with parking . If you do need to park in the village could you be considerate to our neighbours leaving plenty of space around entrances.
We would also like to add that this is an art exhibition and not a Theme Park so not a place for children to be running around shouting and playing hide and seek in the flower beds. If parents could keep their children to the paths and stop them from touching Sculpture it would reduce unwanted conflict with staff. Our priorities have to be with our artists and if you feel that this can’t be achieved this probably isn’t for you.
We also would like to ask visitors to have picnics before they turn up as we do not have the space for  people to be sitting on the grass around the sculptures. We do have a cafe on site with seating where you can sit and contemplate and enjoy some popular home made cuisine.
Having said all that, we would like to give all visitors interested in art a warm welcome and hope you have a tranquil and enjoyable experience.
