Groups (minimum 15 people) are welcome on any day/evening, by appointment.

Any type of group is most welcome. Art groups, horticultural groups, U3A, bird watching, wine tasting, garden society or

just a group of friends.


Location. Between Witham and Maldon on B1018.


Garden Features.

2 acre walled garden dating from 1706.  Huge roses, climbers and 5 massive wisterias cascade from the walls. One

wisteria covers the whole 250’ long wall and has featured in numerous national press and television programmes.

Shrubs, perennials and bulbs with many unusual varieties, ensure year round colour.

Outside the walled garden an intricate box plant knot garden surrounds the folly.



12 acres of woodland walks with rabbit/deer resistant planting. In Winter snowdrops emerge through Autumn cyclamen

leaves, followed by daffodils, primroses and leucojums. In May carpets of bluebells are punctuated by uncurling ferns.

Summer tranquillity drifts through to the highlight of massed cyclamen and colchicums in September.






Although we have an email link a telephone enquiry will have the fastest response.


Sorry, only guide dogs permitted

Private and group visits


Groups are welcome on any day, at any time, by appointment. May is the best time to see the wisterias but groups are

welcome during any month. Allow 1 ½ - 2 hours average visit but it is suggested this is left fairly flexible until you arri

ve (the weather can play an important part!). With only one group at a time, you will have the whole 14 acres to enjoy

Admission charges.  

For groups, we recommend a  £8.00 pp package to include entrance fee, coffee/tea/soft drink & slice of cake.  During the

‘welcome talk’ information sheets/maps are provided.

Plants for sale. A small nursery area with lots of unusual plants for sale at sensible prices. Most are propagated from

plants grown in the garden.

Parking. Ample parking for cars & mini buses.  Large coaches drop off at the gate and park about ¾ mile away.

If you are planning a whole day out and would like information on other gardens, interesting places, pubs for lunch, etc.

please contact us or Maldon Tourist Information on 01621 856503.



Garden update

July 13, 2015

At last the new website is beginning to take shape, apologies for having vanished for 3 months when most needed.


The garden is having an overhaul with new areas being created. We are closed to visitors until next year when we hope to

welcome pre-booked groups and coaches again. The nursery remains open for sales by appointment only.


Wisterias. We currently have wisteria sinensis and macrobotrys for sale. They are grown from layers of our own plants so

are guaranteed to flower as well as their parents. Phone for prices and availability
