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

In order to allow access to residents and emergency vehicles, please note that 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. On Open Thursdays parking available on first come basis.


There is a path suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs and it is due to be extended in winter 23/24. Elsewhere the Gardens are mainly laid to lawn so, under dry weather conditions, they are reasonably accessible. However, if the weather has been very wet, the lawns can become more difficult to negotiate. Carers enter free of charge. Disabled toilet facilities are available.

Refreshments at "Daisy's":

On Sunday Open Days our volunteer team serve bacon rolls, cheese or hummus rolls and homemade soup (Snowdrop open days and October Open day only) until 2.15pm (or subject to availability) and a range of delicious homemade cakes as well as hot and cold drinks until 30 minutes before closing time or until we sell out!

On Open Thursdays our volunteer team provide homemade cakes and hot and cold drinks until 2.00pm. There will be no catering in November.

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 spray is provided, although visitors may also like to bring their own. There is a baby-changing mat 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.


Well behaved dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead and owners should come prepared to clean up after them! There are poop bags available at the Entrance Kiosk and bins for their disposal at the entrance, by the archive building and by the bins near the tea pavilion.
