About

Group and Coach parties are always welcome and we are delighted to have groups coming back and visiting us on a regular basis. We aim to limit the number of coaches that we take in a day to ensure that all of our visitors get an excellent experience. In order for us to provide you with the best service, Group Bookings must be booked in advance so we can accommodate your requirements. Due to our popularity please book as early as possible to ensure your requested date is available. Please see our website for more detailed information and garden tours.

The Gardens are situated just east of the village of Elmstead Market on the A133 which is the Colchester to Clacton road. If travelling on the A12 continue past Colchester, take the A120 to Harwich and then the A133 turn-off for Clacton and Elmstead Market. Follow the signs for Elmstead Market. We are on the left hand side as you enter the village.

Our modern Tea Room is light and airy and over looks the Gravel Garden and Plant Nursery. Open during the day they sell a wide range of drinks, light lunches and home made cakes, including daily specials.
