The Pines Garden, Tea Room & Museum


This 6 acre garden has many fine features including a cascade and adjoining lake, a specially created grass labyrinth and organic kitchen garden with over 40 different species of fruit and vegetables. There are extensive paths for buggy and wheelchair access, and lots of seating for visitors to come and relax at any time of the year.

The Pines Gardens has been run organically since the Spring 2002. This is far more than just not using herbicides and pesticides and more to do with working in harmony with the natural systems, composting, recycling waste materials and learning how to use natural predators to control pests. Access for disabled, ample seating, and great for picnics. Dogs allowed but must be on a lead.

Ensure that you take the time to relax in our tea room which serves hot and cold drinks along with freshly made sandwiches, light lunches and delicious home made cakes. Our tea room is situated across the garden and open Wednesday to Sunday 10:30 to 16:00 and Bank Holidays in the summer months.

The Pines Garden includes the award winning Conference, Training and Events Centre, The Pines Calyx. The building is an exemplar in low carbon design, blending centuries old construction methods with 21st Century technologies.

The Pines Calyx is also available for private hire and has a licence for wedding and other ceremonies.
