Special Winter Opening for 2019

The gardens officially closed to the public on the 30th September 2019. We re-open daily from the 15th March 2020. 

See details below of special weekend opening during December, February and early March.

This year we are opening the Garden Tea Room and Gift Shop on the following weekends in December:

  • Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December          10am to 4pm
  • Saturday 7th December and Sunday 8th December            10am to 4pm
  • Saturday 14th December and Sunday 15th December        10am to 4pm

The Garden Tea Room will be serving a festive menu (booking advised to avoid disappointment). 

Our Gift Shop will be a grotto of Christmas gifts. Why not take the opportunity to do some Christmas shopping in the tranquility of Marwood Hill Gardens.

We will, of course be able to offer a range of personalised Gift Vouchers. Examples of the possible opportunities for Gift Vouchers include:

  • Entry tickets to the gardens
  • Gift vouchers of any value to use in the Plant Sales
  • Gift vouchers for a treat in the Tea Room, for example a 'Cream Tea for Two'

As usual all visitors will have free entry to the Tea Room and Gift Shop on these weekends.

If the weather is kind enough, you are welcome to walk around the garden – but please take care, some paths can be slippery in wet weather. We won’t be manning the Admissions Hut at these times but would ask that any non-Season Ticket Holders, who wish to use this opportunity to see the gardens in winter, place a donation in the Donations Box which is located next to the Admissions Hut
