Private Garden

The 50 hectare (124 acre) Private Garden extends beyond Mayfield Garden and is breathtaking in its design and expanse.

Whilst the 15 hectare Mayfield Garden is open 363 days of the year (closed Christmas and Boxing Day), the Hawkins family opens their Private Garden to visitors during the following periods.
