Lower Hope Gardens
In 2020 we were unable to open our gardens to the public due to Covid 19.
We sincerely hope that 2021 will be a better year for all and that we will once again be able to open in order to raise funds for the National Garden Scheme and one other charity (August date).
The dates for 2021 are currently provisional and we will review the situation on 1 April 2021.
During visits usually the Head Gardener Brian Hall is always on hand to answer any gardening questions you may have.
We pride ourselves of being wheelchair friendly for the main areas of the gardens.
Assistance dogs only are permitted to enter the gardens.
Dates for public visits 2021

Entry £7.50 adult £2 child

All funds raised from entry fees etc on National Garden Scheme days are donated to the NGS with a small percentage going to a designated charity of our choice, which changes every year.
Guest Charity Open Days
In August we invite a charity to use the gardens for the afternoon to raise funds. We hope that we will be able to continue this in 2021.
Private Visits - we are not currently taking bookings
Private garden visits currently can not be catered for.
If this changes, this section will be updated accordingly with contact details on how to request a booking.
Cherry Blossom Day - CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Lower Hope Fruit, which is part of the Estate and a short drive away from the gardens, have a Cherry Blossom Day earlier in the year. This is a spectacular sight! Winner of the prestigious Award "Top Fruit Grower of the Year" in 2011 and 2015.
