We are right off Park Road, Little Easton. Entrance to car park is What3words ‘stocky.bulletins.opponent ‘

To allow access to residents and emergency vehicles, car parking is not permitted along Park Road (the approach road to the Gardens). 

On Open Days, please follow the instructions of the stewards in our car park – thank you for your co-operation.

Accessibility:

Priority parking close to the entry of the Gardens for disabled visitors. We have a few wheelchairs for use by visitors.
There is a path suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs.
Elsewhere the Gardens are mainly laid to lawn so, under dry weather conditions, they are reasonably accessible. If the weather has been very wet, the lawns can become more difficult to negotiate. If ground conditions are very poor the Gardens may be closed to visitors.
Carers enter free of charge.
Disabled toilet facilities are available.

Refreshments at “Daisy’s”:

On Sunday Open Days our volunteer team serve refreshments until 30 minutes before closing time or until sold out:

– bacon rolls, cheese or hummus rolls and homemade soup (Snowdrop open days and October Open day only) until 2.15pm (or subject to availability);

– a range of delicious homemade cakes;

– hot and cold drinks.

On Open Thursdays our volunteers serve homemade cakes and hot and cold drinks until 2.00pm.

Toilet facilities:

Chemical toilets are used at the Gardens as there is no mains water or sewerage. The toilets are cleaned regularly and anti-viral/anti-bacterial hand gel is provided.

There is a baby-changing facility in one of the toilets.

Garden produce and other merchandise:

Seasonal vegetables and fruit will be on sale through the summer and into autumn, as well as other merchandise.

Children’s Activities:

Children enjoy visiting our treehouse and having space to run around.

On main season Sunday Open Days we provide a children’s fun trail and simple but fun craft/wildlife activities for our younger visitors.

Dogs:

Well behaved dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead and owners should come prepared to clean up after them!

Poop bags are available at the Entrance Kiosk and bins for their disposal at the entrance, by the archive building and by the bins near Daisy’s.

Closure of the Gardens:

The Trust may decide to close the Gardens if it considers they are unsafe for visitors or volunteers; or for other foreseeable reasons. The Trust will post any closure decision on this website and on the Trust’s social media and refund any advance tickets sold.
