The birds are calling or drumming all day and everything is starting to wake up. Open Sundays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays 11.00-4.00 p.m.

Welcome to Lincolnshire’s ‘lost’ gardens. 400 years of gardening have created a peaceful and settled atmosphere, enhanced by the beautiful valley surrounding it.

This is truly a ‘lost’ garden. When I started chopping down trees and pulling out undergrowth 13 years ago, I had a vision of what this garden could be. I never imagined it would get this good and we are now nationally recognised for our work. The pleasure of working on this giant garden just gets better and better.

Movement in a garden is very important and our meadows provide swaying grasses, busy bumblebees and butterflies. Other delights include David Austin Roses that weave through the grasses and 75 varieties of our favourite sweet peas. The cottage garden and vegetable garden are more secluded and provide our tearoom with vegetables for soup, salads and herbs. The cutflower garden, raised almost entirely from seed every year, is a highlight. We have a tearoom selling light lunches, teas and homemade cakes and a shop that stocks seasonal gardening gifts and our own range of sweet pea seed.

The gardens have been carefully designed so that adults and children can enjoy the gardens together. You can find a birdhide, swing, turf maze and big yew tunnel to explore together and children are welcome to pick a few flowers. Just off the A1, in the middle of England, we are easy to visit and look forward to seeing you.
