The romantic eight-acre gardens of King John’s Lodge are as beautiful as they are tranquil, and have captured the hearts of many a garden writer, both in the UK and abroad.

A delightful and deceptively large rustic café serving fresh, home-cooked lunches, cakes and a great selection of fine teas and coffees. With a roaring fire to warm you up on winter days!

The shop offers an eclectic mix of garden tools, ornaments, vintage finds and great ideas for the home. With such a diverse range it’s worth popping in to see what words can’t describe!

The nursery grows a selection of perennial plants with care and expertise. Varieties are chosen because they are the most beautiful, the hardest to find or are the most exciting new introductions.
