Summer Open Month

13th June - 13th July

This summer, we will be opening the garden, without any sculpture, from 13 June to 13 July, but on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays only (11 am until 5 pm.) That’s 15 days! And there will be some special events during that time.

See our What’s on page for details of birdsong walks, garden tours and guest events including a lunchtime concert and a conversation in the Ballroom between Caroline Lucas and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

We also have a few non-bookable weekly events on a Thursday.  Learn how to press flowers with Pressto up at the pool (£5.00, cash only taster session) or find gardener Neil Frame by the Lake at 2 pm discussing all things fern.

We would love you to come along and wander around our wildflower-fringed lawns, secret lake and woodland paths, as well as enjoying our exuberant borders,  magnificent trees and, of course, the fabulous roses that climb up the manor walls and scramble over the orchard.

We will be working with four charities, and entry will be by a donation of your choice; we suggest a minimum of £7.

Our four chosen charities this year are: Wychwood Forest Trust, Refugee Resource, Burford Environment  Action Group (Beagles) and Kissing it Better. We hope you have the opportunity to have a chat with them when you visit (you will find them in the Ballroom or walking around the grounds).

We do not have refreshments available, however our village pub The Three Horseshoes, will be open, serving afternoon teas, lunches and evening meals.
