Open Days

Cadhay garden open to the public

Cadhay gardens will be open again on Friday afternoons between 2 and 5.30pm starting May 7th until the end of September. Unfortunately due to the Coronavirus restrictions we will not as yet restart public tours inside the main house as we have to reduce the risk for those guests stay in the property each week. Now that Covid restrictions have been lifted we are offering a courtyard tour. From there the guides will be able to provide details of the history of the house explaining how it has evolved over the years. The Tearooms will be open serving hot and cold drinks plus homemade cake and these can be eaten on our outside terrace or within the Old Apple Store at socially distanced tables.

Visitors are also invited to explore the garden and allotments. In fact more and more people are coming just to visit the gardens which are an oasis of calm and tranquility and change dramatically as the season progresses.

Cadhay’s garden is beautiful but it is not a formal show garden. Nonetheless gardening enthusiasts come here to enjoy its informal and natural design and relaxing beauty. The house is approached from the north down a lime tree avenue. On the east side it looks out over lawns with a ha-ha giving a seamless view over parkland – a very popular venue for wedding receptions.
