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 this free-to-use Garden 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! There's a great range of plants for sale (cash only). Wheelchair accessible paths, tearoom and toilet. Dog-friendly garden and a gazebo to shelter in when necessary.

The beautiful, modern Orangery offers very reasonably priced hot drinks, cake, sandwiches and more!
