Visiting Ferns Lodge

National Garden Scheme Garden

Ferns Lodge is an NGS garden, opening for the first time in 2019. It spans 4 acres, including half an acre of cottage gardens around the Ferns Lodge house and an additional 3.5 acres of woodland garden under restoration, where the original Victorian planting is preserved. Additionally, there is a vegetable garden. We practice natural gardening, with no sprays or chemicals used. Please bring wellies, as good balance is essential.

Opening Times

1st June 2024 – 2pm to 5pm
2nd June 2024 – 2pm to 5pm

£5.00 entry at gate + £5.00 for tea and cake; plants for sale.

We also offer private openings in aid of the NGS – for 5 to 20 people. Ask us for more details.
