Details

The privately owned historic gardens are a key part of Croome’s landscape designed by ‘Capability’ Brown. The walled garden is owned by Chris and Karen Cronin who acquired it separately and rescued it from ruin nearly 15 years ago.

They have restored many of the buildings and large greenhouses with great care and attention but much more work is still to be carried out. The National Trust have been working with Chris and Karen to open the 18th-century walled gardens for visitors to enjoy again in 2016.

You'll be able to see the extensive restoration work on the greenhouses, the beautiful border planting, the rose garden and working vegetable plots of the five acres walled garden.

The gardens can only be accessed through Croome’s visitor centre where admission tickets can be purchased.
The walled garden will be open from 11am until 5pm (last entry 4pm) every Friday, Saturday and Sunday (plus Bank Holidays) from 25 March until the end of October 2016. As the walled garden is privately owned there is an additional admission fee of £5 per adult (children free) which goes towards its restoration.

Dogs can't enter the walled garden but tether hooks will be provided outside the entrance gate.
