Community Open Days

See the beautiful sanctuary gardens, featuring numerous exotic trees and shrubs, over a hundred species of old fashioned roses, and rare ducks and geese. Later in the year look out for the stunning fiery autumn colours. Also take a stroll through our private nature reserve, a precious and diverse slice of protected wilderness stretching down to the river Stour.

Entry: Adults £7, Children £2 (Under 5s free)

No booking required, sorry we can't allow dogs on site.

On the Trail

In this recent footage recorded the woods, two rabbits chase each other around in the dark. Rabbits have made several complex burrows in the light soil around the site and sometimes even share the tunnels with other mammals such as badgers.
