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! Take a break to enjoy nature on the many seating areas along the paths, in the gazebo and the unusual igloo domes.

There's a great range of plants for sale during spring and summer (cash only please). Wheelchair accessible paths, coffee shop and toilet. Well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome in the Garden and the coffee shop.

This free-to-use garden has a beautiful, modern Orangery coffee shop which is independently run. It offers very reasonably priced refreshments and an opportunity to order specialist cakes! Check out their website and social media pages as they also run special events throughout the year.
