Garden WalksEvent Date: 28th Feb 2021
LOCKDOWN UPDATE – 11.01.2021
We are saddened to announce that we are closing the grounds and gardens at Thornton Manor Estate for the time being, although the government guidance states “indoor attractions at venues such as botanical gardens, heritage homes and landmarks must also close, though outdoor grounds of these premises can stay open for outdoor exercise.”
We have made this difficult decision to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the general public and we wholeheartedly apologise for any inconvenience caused.
We know that the gardens and grounds have been enjoyed by so many of you over the past few months and have been a hint of normality in these very strange times we are in.
We hope to have the gardens open again very soon for all to enjoy and we will be following the COVID guidelines very carefully and will announce the re-opening as soon as we possibly can.
Thank you for your patience, support and understanding in this matter.

Canine companions welcome and are to be kept on leads at all times.
Open daily, Monday to Sundays from 10am, till 3.30pm, entrance will be via Manor Cottage, and parking will be at the Walled Garden car park.
Starting from Monday 9th November 2020 running every day until 28th February 2021, subject to availability – please check EventBrite for all dates.
Covid guidelines will apply, with a one way system in place and social distancing to be maintained at all times..
Please be aware that the walking route is unfortunately not wheelchair friendly.
Please wear suitable footwear with good grips when on our garden or woodland walks. The woodland walk in particular can become quite muddy during periods of wet weather, so you might need a pair of wellies:
As with any rural path, it contains tree roots, mud, leaves, stones, branches, brambles, nettles, fungi etc so please take care whilst enjoying your walk.
Please keep children under control at all times as the walks pass by open water and we occasionally drive vehicles on the wider paths to access different parts of the estate.
