As a thank you to all our amazing donors that helped us reopen the gardens we have been giving daily access to the Bothy Gardens throughout June and July. We hope you have all been able to enjoy this little haven of calm.

Now we are returning to some normality in the gardens, and to give this very special place an opportunity to recover from some very heavy use, from 1 August we will be returning the Bothy Gardens to their normal opening hours of Friday Mornings and occasional Sundays. This will enable the volunteers that keep this unique part of Stephens House & Gardens looking so lovely to spend some time aiding the recovery.
