We welcome pre-booked visits by horticultural, painting and other groups.  Groups can choose to have a guided tour with Will Twentyman or Judy Watson, who look after the gardens.  

If the group is very large, it can be difficult for explanations can be heard.  In those cases, we provide maps and information sheets, and are on hand to answer questions. 

It should be made clear that this is a family garden and visitors can expect to see evidence of the usual outdoor pastimes.  

The lawns leading to the mere are terraced, with a gradually sloping gravel path to the side.  The areas nearer the house and the Oval, Side, Rose and Kitchen gardens are level and without steps.  We have plenty of seats all with fantastic views over the garden or mere.  Our farmyard has ample parking space and can accommodate coaches.

2018  Group Prices, minimum group size 10.

£7.50 per person for a guided tour, followed by tea or coffee and homemade cake, or if preferred, wine and savoury nibbles.  

£5 per person if the tour and refreshments aren’t required.

£3 per person for painting or other groups who don’t need refreshments or horticultural information.

Please contact us if you would like to arrange a visit, by email to or telephone 01953 852301

“We would like to thank Judy for the guided tour around the fabulous gardens at Seamere.  It was breathtaking.”
