The Gardener’s Bothy 2024

We are moving to an events-based system of opening in 2024. We are going to be open for distinct periods of time around an event or theme rather than being open for most weeks of the year.

During the event periods, we are open 11am – 4pm, Thursday – Sunday plus Bank Holidays.

Outside of these times we can be contacted through the website and we can open by appointment to meet with customers.
