Come and visit the hospice garden as part of the National Open Garden Scheme!
We have a large enclosed area, with various protected trees, shrubs, planting, rockeries and lawn. Within our garden there is a beautiful pond and water feature. There are raised vegetable beds, and a terraced area. Some sloping areas, with steps. The garden is designed to be a relaxing space and give therapeutic benefit to hospice patients.
One of our largest features in the garden is a glorious copper beech tree, which we believe is over 200 years old. The rockeries are formed with the original stones from the 1800’s, and were uncovered during the restoration of the garden, which took place four years ago. Despite being close to the city centre, located on a main road, we have a calm and peaceful space that is enjoyed by all who discover it.
There’ll also be lots of activities and plenty of refreshments – check back soon for full details!
