the GARDENER'S COTTAGE
The Gardener's Cottage is a delightful cafe, nestled between the historic Walled Kitchen Gardens and the atmospheric Stableyard. If you fancy a well-deserved treat after a bracing walk around the Parkland or feel the need for refreshment before heading into our 50-acre Garden, we'd love to welcome you to our cosy tea rooms!
Gardener's Cottage opening times
Our standard opening times are Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10am until 4pm, but please check our latest Opening Times for any current exceptions, as unfortunately we are affected from time to time by staff shortages.
At the moment, we are currently serving a lighter menu which includes bloomer sandwiches, cakes and hot and cold beverages plus the pre-bookable Afternoon Tea.View our seasonal Gardener's Cottage menu here.
There's no need to book for the lunchtime sandwiches, cakes and beverages as tables are available on a first come, first serve basis.
Afternoon Teas must be booked and paid for in full in advance.
