Internationally famous gardens, including dry, damp, shade, reservoir and woodland areas. The result of over 50 years of hard work and application of the huge body of plant knowledge possessed by Beth Chatto and her late husband Andrew. Visitors cannot fail to be affected by the peace and beauty of the garden. The new Reservoir Garden was opened by Beth in 2017: a wonderful area, and a must-visit for those who haven’t seen it yet. Large plant nursery. We have a large Tearoom overlooking the Gravel Garden and Nursery, offering homemade breakfasts, lunches and teas. It is also fully licensed
