Whickham Hermitage Community Garden

About us: 

Closed for winter - from 2nd December 2019 until March 2020

Re-opening in time for the arrival of the Easter Bunny!

Whickham Hermitage Community Garden is an award-winning Victorian walled garden, providing an oasis in the heart of a bustling village.  It's been lovingly restored and renewed by dedicated volunteers and experts. Enjoy a walk around to appreciate the vast array of plants and visit the wildlife pond (the old mini boating lake). 

See the beautiful Black East Indian ducks on the pond and the bantams and budgies will entertain you in their own special way!  Sam, the rabbit, just looks on quietly!

Garden sculptures have been created on-site by local artists and there's a children's playhouse for little visitors to enjoy! Look out for exciting new projects in development - including a Sensory Garden!

This free-to-use garden has a beautiful, modern Orangery tearoom which offers very reasonably priced hot drinks, sandwiches, cake and more!  There's a great range of plants for sale.

Wheelchair accessible paths, tearoom and toilet. Dog-friendly garden and a gazebo to shelter in when necessary.

Look out for Special Events with extended opening hours - including visits by the Easter Bunny!

Volunteers are always appreciated to help maintain the garden.

If you shop on-line please consider supporting us by linking through Easyfundraising.  It doesn't cost you anything and the on-line store makes a donation to the Garden. https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/whcg/
