Welcome to Lower Hope Gardens

Following the very sad & unexpected death of Mr Clive Richards on 16 April 2021, the planned garden opening dates will still go ahead.


However we will not be selling teas and cakes. The toilet facilties will be open.


Entry by pre bought ticket from NGS website or cash on the door - please bring the exact money - we do not have card facilities.  


£7.50 per adult and £2 per child.

On Sunday 8 August the gardens will be open for St Michael's Hospice and they will be providing teas and cakes.

To give you an idea of what you are likely to see at our gardens we have added to this home page two compositions of some of the lovely sights you will experience.  The first one was created by Brian Hall, Head Gardener and the second is by Rob Woolf both of whom work at Lower Hope.

Now that we are open again on the dates listed here we hope that you will enjoy exploring the traditional garden areas, themed gardens as well as the longer walks around the lakes.


There are plenty of seats and benches to be found around the gardens so you can sit back and enjoy the surroundings at your leisure.

The images on this website are a small selection of what you can expect to see. The gardens are constantly changing and growing.

We are currently unable to offer private visits to the gardens

Mr & Mrs Clive & Sylvia Richards

In 2017 we wrote and published a book on our gardens

"In A Field of Dreams" 

as we wanted to capture the essence and creativity of how it has all evolved over the years. 

This book is offered for sale at all garden open events.

Visiting the area for a few days?  


Stay at Cherry Orchard Barns just a few minutes drive from Lower Hope Gardens.  Newly refurbished luxury barns for hire.
