The current garden at Stewart Hill is over nine years old and comprises a potager walled garden, an organic vegetable garden, an ornamental pool and a croquet lawn. In addition, this year has seen the construction of a greenhouse which embraces wide ranging views of the surrounding fields.

Admission £5.00 [children free]. Home made teas will be available and there will be a plant stall as well as a stall selling Nepalese goods.
