Welcome to Guy’s Cliffe Walled Garden

The Walled Garden was originally part of the kitchen garden for Guy’s Cliffe House from at least the 1770s to the late 1940s.  In recent years the garden had become totally overgrown & derelict.

Clearance work on the site started in January 2014.  Since then volunteers have contributed over 13,000 hours of work to bring the garden back to life.  

The aim of the volunteer project is to restore the walls and glasshouses and return the site to a working Georgian/Victorian kitchen garden for the enjoyment and educational benefit of the community, and to give an insight into how the garden supported an important country house.   The garden is listed as a Grade II site by English Heritage on the Register of Parks & Gardens of Special Historic Interest.  

The garden is open to the general public on event & volunteer days. Our next 2017 full Open Days (with information boards, catering and activities) will be :

    Saturday 17th June,

    Saturday 22nd July (National Gardens Scheme Open Day),

    Sat 9th & Sun 10th September (Heritage Weekend Open Days).  

Entry is free  (except on 22nd July,  the NGS Open Day, when there will be a £2.50 charge for charity).

From March to October, visitors are welcome on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month to look at our progress.

Visitors are also welcome to pop in on any of our normal volunteer days when we are working in the garden.

Looking south down the central path of the garden

We welcomed nearly 250 visitors to the garden over the Easter weekend.  Despite the mixed weather our younger visitors were entertained by an Easter trail and, as usual, everyone enjoyed Peter & Mary’s excellent catering.  A great start to our season of open days. Thanks to everyone who came along.

 Newsletter: Review of 2016. 

Our new paths, largely funded by The Henry VIII Endowed Trust, Warwick, were officially opened on 24th April by their Chairman, Mr John Edwards.  We were delighted to welcome members of the Trust to the garden for the opening ceremony. The paths are a huge improvement, much appreciated by volunteers and visitors alike.
