The Garden at Old WesleyDale

We have used the 'Arts and Crafts' approach to garden design to create a garden that is in harmony with the historic stone house and the surrounding unique outbuildings. This garden has evolved into a series of 'garden rooms' that lead from one area to another. The walled 'topiary garden', picking and potager garden, the white garden and the hot garden each have their own distinct personality while still providing that connection back to the house.

Opening Times

The garden is only open by appointment for Private Tours from October 2019 to April 2020 for $10 per head .Devonshire teas are offered as part of the 'Edwardian Experience' at an extra cost of $10.
Special events will be added when dates are set.

Entry Fee: $10
