Visitor Information


Welcome to Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens, you will find all the visitor information you need for an enjoyable visit to the garden below or in the video.

The garden and tea room is now closed until 1st April 2020. You can still buy plants from the nursery by prior arrangement.

The plant nursery is open on the same days as the garden throughout the summer. You can check the days that we are open on the calendar.

We open at 1:00pm. If you arrive early, you are welcome to have a picnic or stretch legs in the car park, but we will be unable to admit you to the garden or nursery until the opening time.

We have disabled parking next to the admission hut and wheelchair users can be dropped off closer to the garden entrance. The garden is flat, so most of it is suitable for wheelchairs and we can advise you on the best route to take to avoid a small amount of gravel.

There are plenty of seats throughout the garden. There is a small step into both the tea room and the toilets.

Our staff have been trained to be dementia friendly and we are proud to have been awarded the purple badge.

Group Visits

Groups of 15 people or more can book exclusive access to the garden outside normal opening times.

The price includes garden entrance and an introduction to the garden from Vanessa.

Refreshments are available and cheese and wine can be arranged if booked in advance.
