The Gardens at Salle

Private Garden Tours

Our Walled kitchen garden is laid out in quarters. With one quarter laid to lawn, one for fruit bushes and the other two for a large variety of vegetables, infilled with annual flowers. The herbaceous border runs from north to south through the middle of the garden and is planted as a hot and cold border.  Around the edges are espalier trained Apple and Pear trees, with Peaches and Figs to the south wall. There is a mature herb bed and a large glasshouse with mature grape vines and our cacti and succulent collection.

We are able to organise private tours of the walled garden and the pleasure gardens at very reasonable rates. Our head gardener Tom will be your guide.

For more information about arranging your tour, please email our head gardener Tom Barwick.

The Pleasure Gardens

The Pleasure gardens at Salle are only open to the public once each year for our large open garden event. Unless you book a private tour!

The pleasure gardens consist of formal lawns and Yew topiary, with established rose beds, Rhododendrons, specimen trees and in one corner, the Orangery. The Orangery is planted with many exotic plants including Bougainvillea and Hibiscus and is the perfect place to end the tour with a cup of tea and cake.

For more information about arranging your tour, please email our head gardener Tom Barwick.

Do you fancy giving us a hand and doing a bit of gardening with us at the walled garden?.

We're after volunteers, previous experience isn't required, just a willingness to get your hands dirty. We have a lovely team of volunteers, but we are always on the lookout for more.

We are looking for volunteers to start from May, working through until October, though you don’t have to commit to any length of time. You can start any time on a Monday morning for as long as you want to help, we are there from 7.30am if you are really keen!

Tea and coffee and occasional cake provided as are tools and gloves, you just need sensible shoes and work clothes.

If you are interested, or have any questions, please email

Working with the Country Trust.

We are very proud to work with the Country Trust, a nationwide charity that organises opportunities for school children from areas of high social disadvantage to reconnect with the land and discover more about the food they eat and where it comes from. This summer we will welcome the schools once more. They spend half their day in the walled garden, learning about herbs and vegetables before being taken by tractor and trailer to the farm to learn how and why we grow the crops that we do. Last year a promotional video for the charity was filmed here at Salle. More about the charity can be found at
