ABOUT US

 

For the past twelve years we have been warmly welcoming people to this unique space to enjoy the peace tranquility and unique setting that this part of Somerset offers.

We are a small rural walled cottage garden in the heart of the Mells village, Somerset. Set in an acre of grounds the garden is split between a community nursery and a delightful rambling garden where you can grab a cup of tea or a pizza from the outdoor café and lose yourself in the tranquility. In the 1500's the garden was a site of a monastery belonging to Glastonbury Abbey.

The community  plant nursery specialises in cottage garden perennials and herbs. Plant sales support a range of social programs aimed at improving the health and well-being of people in the community who may be experiencing isolation and loneliness. Workshops and seminars are regularly  scheduled through the season.

The Garden  and Cafe are open to the public  April until the end of September. If you want to enjoy a longer stay in the village book our gorgeous  two bedroom cottage and enjoy having this lovely garden on your doorstep.


 OPENING HOURS

Wed through to Sunday 
11.00 TO 5.00PM
for the cafe and plant sales

the pizza oven is on all week  running between 12 and 4pm





FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

  • The garden is closed to the public on Mondays and Tuesdays for our therapeutic programmes this includes Bank Holidays

  • There is no cost to visit the garden, we are more of a cafe in a garden than a visiting garden

  • Dogs on leads are very welcome

  • There is on street parking and a village carpark on Longfield rd by the Cricket field that can hold 60 cars. Please do not park in the Tithe car park, this must be kept clear for the groups that use the barn. .

ACCESSIBILITY

The Walled Garden is partially accessible to visitors with mobility impairments.

There are stepped areas to different aspects of the garden but flat access to the cafe is possible from the Tithe Barn car park entrance.

The shale pathways can make it hard going for buggies and wheelchairs.

 

Dog walkers and cyclist welcome
