Garden Bench August

We are delighted to welcome visitors back to The Manor House Garden again, using an online booking and payment system whereby we can then allocate a time slot on open afternoons.

Delicious Maynard ice creams and sorbets are always available to purchase. Additionally, on Tuesdays, and any Mondays or Wednesdays that we open in August, we will offer tasty Manor Garden Picnics to be pre-ordered but paid for here, in the garden, on arrival.

We will offer a general free introduction at 1.30pm and 3.30pm.  There will be no tours. But we do have a beautiful and informative guide book which you can purchase on the day for £5. There is also a virtual guide of the garden available from our friends at Candide, via their app.
