Group Visits

In 2013 our garden will be open to the public from 12.30 – 5.00pm, on Wednesdays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays, from Good Friday until 29 September, and we look forward to welcoming you and your families to the garden on those days.

On the days we are not open to the public we are very happy to host organised groups of 12 or more by appointment.  The visit, which can be in the morning, afternoon or evening at any time of the year, includes a guided tour of the garden  by the owners for those who would like it.  Maps of the garden will also be issued, so those who prefer just to ‘do their own thing’ shouldn’t miss anything of interest.  The cost of admission for groups of 20 or more is £4.00 person.  For smaller groups the normal admission charge of £4.50 applies, with a minimum charge of £54.00.

Refreshments of tea/coffee and home-made cake can be made available before or after the tour at £3.50 per person. Or, if something more substantial is required, why not try our very popular Ploughman’s lunches or suppers?  The Ploughman’s  consist of: home-cooked ham and mature cheddar, mixed salad, pickles and crusty bread, plus tea/coffee and a slice of home-made cake or tub of dairy ice cream at £11.00 per person.  These are freshly prepared and must be pre-booked.

As an introduction, prior to the visit, your members may like to have a talk (with slides) which shows the development of The Garden at The Bannut, from its inception in 1984 to the present day.   Further details are given in our leaflet ‘Talks on Gardens, Plants & Garden History’.

Please contact Daphne or Maurice Everett for further information, to arrange a visit, or for copies of the garden leaflet.
