Every summer we welcome the public to Bridewell for our Open Gardens and Community days. Open Gardens see us proudly showing off the beauty of our walled garden and vineyard, and the new planting by the team. The traditional smithy and woodworking area will also be open.
We sell our produce; eggs, fruit, vegetables, jams, jellies and chutneys and of course you can buy our fabulous wines too. Lots of plants are for sale, lovingly nurtured in our greenhouses. You can also join a free guided tour of the gardens, given by Ian Gourlay who has been a team member at Bridewell for many years so can give a wonderful history of the project and how we work.
And it seems that no one can resist our famous teas; tables are set up in the garden for you to enjoy homemade sponges, chocolate cakes, fruit slices and of course scones with cream and Bridewell jam.
We charge a small entry fee on Open Gardens days of £3.50 per person; all of which goes towards our running costs.
We have gift vouchers for sale at £7.00 each (free entry for two on any Open day); please contact us if you would like some. firstname.lastname@example.org
