Garden Open days.

 In 2017 the gardens will be open on February 17th (Snowdrop Day) – Sold Out, 22nd April – Sold Out, 13th May Sold Out, 14th May, 9th June, and 21st October. From 2.00pm to 5.30pm

To visit the arboretum you will need to apply for tickets, to do this, please complete the form here.

We look forward to welcoming you to Thenford in 2017. The arboretum, with its many features including medieval fish ponds, eighteenth-century walled garden, extensive ponds and lakes and a range of features recently introduced, covers some 70 acres in which are planted over 3,500 different types of trees and shrubs. Two or three hours can easily be lost in a leisurely walk. The terrain is quite rough, and is not particularly suitable for the disabled.

The cost is £12 per person, the Snowdrop day will be £8. On arrival you will be given a map showing the layout of the garden and arboretum. There will be tea, coffee and cakes available during the afternoon in the Church Barn, at extra cost, and there are adequate toilets. Directions to Thenford will be sent with your tickets. We need to have a list of names of those coming with your group, a week or two before the event, please.

We would be grateful if people do not picnic in the grounds, and particularly not in the churchyard. Sadly we are unable to accommodate dogs, and children under 10 years.
