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 (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! Please check out its own social media and website as they run as series of events including Chatty Cafe.

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. Whickham Hermitage Community Garden Limited is a Registered Charity (Number 1145378)
