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). Garden sculptures have been created on-site by local artists; there's a children's playhouse and fairy village for little visitors to enjoy! Look out for exciting new projects in development - including a Sensory Garden! Seasonal plants are on sale - cash only please.
This free-to-use garden has a beautiful, modern Orangery tearoom which offers very reasonably priced hot drinks, sandwiches, cake and more! firstname.lastname@example.org or their own Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/The-Orangery-101086528328327/
