CORONA VIRUS UPDATE May 2nd 2021
We are delighted to announce the re-opening of Hamwood Gardens as from FRIDAY 21ST MAY 2021 from 10am and we are also excited to open the NEW WOODLAND TRAIL which meanders through the arboretum of the Pine Walk , through the Oak plantation and along the recently rediscovered Thuja walk. The trail will be a feature of interest to all tree lovers and a great adventure for the young to explore nature and have a chance to spot the many species of wildlife here at Hamwood including the elusive Red Deer. This is a popular habitat for foxes , badgers , squirrels and all manner of birdlife including the resident buzzards , ravens and owls. Look out for the raven’s nest in the Monterey Pine along the Pine Walk!
PLEASE NOTE : NEW ENTRY FEE TO INCLUDE FULL ACCESS TO GARDENS AND WOODLAND TRAIL just 10 euros PER PERSON AND ITS FREE FOR CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 10 UP TO A MAX OF 4 CHILDREN. FOR ANYONE WISHING TO BRING A GROUP OF MORE THAN 4 CHILDREN WE WILL GLADLY ARRANGE AN EDUCATIONAL TOUR BOOKED IN ADVANCE.
All revenue is recycled back into management of the gardens and woodland so your contributions will help continue to improve these historic Gardens. We have received no grants (in spite of many applications) or voluntary help for the works in the garden so we really appreciate your attendance. We genuinely strive to continue creating new features in the gardens and our plan is to open a cafe in the coming months and to create a Zen garden in the Japanese area at the furthest end of the Walled Garden . We will keep you posted on the website.
We will also be launching our NEW LOOK WEBSITE soon so keep an eye out! And soon too you will be able to become a MEMBER OF HAMWOOD GARDENS which will enable you to visit all year round during the normal opening hours to view the Gardens and walk around the Woodland Trail . We only have space for a certain number of Members so please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested and we will send you details.
Hope you come and visit soon after the 21st May relaunch and we very much look forward to seeing you.
